#RoundAboutTown With Henri Yire

My week has been long.

Deadlines. Events. Traffic.

Anyone tethered to the Lagos life like me will know that living in Lagos requires a first rate mind and a fetish for dangerous living.

But we have gotten a hang of it.
Haven’t we?

I am particularly excited about this weekend though.

First off, it started early with the 2019 Lagos book and art festival at Freedom Park.

An amazing literary experience that you should definitely check out. ( It ends on Sunday.)
