#Pulse36 Day 8 : Asaba calls

0

Today is our first day of rest.

Before we
even set out, one advice Travel writer, Pelu Awofeso gave was “rest every 6/7
days”. So it’s safe to say we were just following advice.

So maybe
we’ll just recap.

Our Day 1.

Was
Sunday. July 2. Our first stop was Ijebu-Igbo. Oke-Ire to be specific. There we
found the tomb believed to hold the body of the Queen of Sheba, Bilikisu
Sungbo.

Day 2.

We
weren’t shown around the palace of the Awujale of Ijebu Land, but we still
managed to grab a photo or two.

Then off
we went to Ore, the food bus stop of Nigeria. Then Ondo Town, where someone is
never met before insisted he pay for our hotel for the night. Bless his soul.

Day 3 was
for Idanre:

Here, we
climbed and explored 800 years of history at Idanre Hills.

Beautiful
place.

Day 4 was for Benin.

But we
made a quick stop at Ore. Said bye bye to new friends we might never see again.
Then we were off Benin City. 5 minutes in and we were already in the hands of
the police. Just their routine bullying and tensioning.

We had
equally amazing hosts here. Ring Road blew our minds.

Day 5 was
a UNIBEN kinda day.

And we
were blown away by the incredible art we saw everywhere. So much so, we had to
come back;

On Day 6:

We spoke
to more students about their art. And more. And more.

Day 7 was
for Wafi.

And we
had the most amazing hosts in Warri. From Collins to Oreva, to Kevwe.
