Happy 50th Birthday Nigeria

Oh what fun we had celebrating Nigerian Culture Day yesterday in school. As my husband noted, it was like being in a prom or wedding because everyone — students, teachers, parents, nannies and drivers — wore elaborate and colorful Nigerian outfits. I would put it in the same category as the  fiestas and festivals we celebrate in my country, but in the more confined space of our campus. And this is what makes it a lot more fun! We had cultural performances, exhibits, activities ranging from henna painting, beading, and storytelling. The PTO really put a lot of energy in bringing Nigerian culture to the school — with dancers performing during the exhibits and lots of free food from every region of the country. Apart from the market, my favorite was the cultural performance during the opening ceremonies. I don’t need to brave the traffic or bad roads to experience Nigerian culture, for at least once a year it is brought to my doorstep.

  1. Year by year, thousand of people decide to move permanently abroad and to make a new life for themselves and their families in a foreign land.
    While its true that the grass is always greener on the other side, many individuals have encountered problems abroad, then regretting not having ample support from their place of origin.
    One of the things one need to check out very carefully is the expat medical insurance.
    Examine the provision of healthcare.
