I am so sorry that I have been away from blogging so long. I have missed all of you. Work has been very laborious and taxing on my nerves. Is it too late for me to scream. AAAAARRRRGHHH!!! ( screaming to the top of my lungs).
Preparing for travelling is a very stressful situation. I cannot tell you the last time I had a "gorgeous "day. Where I pamper myself. I miss those times.
What is an ideal "gorgeous " day you may ask. Watching all of my favorite programs ... I love Naija movies, just love it... also I love being outdoors-running, walking or just reading. That to me is an ideal situation.
The best " gorgeous" day I ever had was when I went to Kontagora with S.O. Sexy. We have heard about this nice hotel there and since I have never went there before we decided to go. Everything that could have possibly went wrong on that trip did. The hotel was once inhabited by ex-architectural Americans who were living in the quarters that they have constructed.
Each bungalow consisted of three bedrooms and it was very romantic that it looked like individual cottages that had paths to connect to the other bungalows. There were about 14 of these such bungalows and a main reception area that also had a restaurant . They also had a Olympic sized swimming pool ideal you might say- wrong!!! The pool had no water, the rooms were uninhabited for so long that they had dead lizards and flying insects all over the place...I laughed I had no choice or else I would have definitely cried.
I am a firm believer if life offers me lemons then I will make lemonade- and so that is exactly what I did. Instead, of looking at the bad in the situation I set out too have the best time ever. And surprisingly enough I did. We had this quirky bellman who also by the way served as the cook. He presented us with a menu full of tasty things only to be let down with " sorry ma, we don't have that" and when he would utter these phrases he would move his head like an Indian side to side. I asked for spaghetti bolognaise again "sorry ma, we don't have that". This phrase was repeated about six times-so finally I said just bring me what you have and he did chips and chicken....(Good Grief)...
I was just too tired to argue. We wanted to see the nightlife of Kontagora for a bit but the driver did not return with the vehicle right away. So we walked around the compound at night just gazing at the moon and the stars that seemed to be everywhere. We even headed out and sat on some rocks at the edge of the compound and occasionally were distracted by the bright lights of the oncoming traffic. We did not even consider getting bitten by snakes that is how engrossed we were in our conversation and just in each others company. Our driver has finally returned and we went out to the main city and bought suya with some bread and had it with some Ovaltine. It was wonderful! Later, S.O.Sexy would tell me that was the day he would have no other woman for his wife but me....So you see how can that not be a "gorgeous"moment....
