Spent 10 days in Nigera at the top of the year to chill and see fam.
My flight landed at 8, luggage took 2hrs and then the drive home took an 1hr+ so I spent new years in deep sleep!
The country is only fun when you're well organised and have everything required to get by over there; a 4x4 that can hack any terrain, a driver, plenty of diesel for your generator (NEPA) and money, coupled with the expectation to never pay the full amount for an item or service, haggle haggle!
My auntie's driver was still on holiday so movement was limited. We saw enough for a good time, but obviously you can roam the country if you're in the back seat.
The roads are still horrendous, everyone is trying to sell you everything and the rich are even richer.
Anyway just a small selection of what I snapped...

Staying with family has its bonuses. Morning, noon and night I ate like a king.

In Nigeria a house isn't a home until it's got more than 6 rooms.
