Sally here! I’m taking over from Harry for today’s post as he is busy getting ready for the next big TrekBuyFly African Adventure with a celebrity foodie (I cannot wait).
You don’t have to hold your breath and wait for the next trip, you can find things to do whilst at home (for the Lagosians reading this). For the non-Lagosians, don’t feel left out, pay us a visit.
Culled from LostInLagos June 2017 Edition, here are the Top 10 Indoor antics (rainy season and all) in no particular order…
