The Quest For My Ride

Dateline – Friday 16th 2008

Mission – To get me a car
Location – Cotonou, on the edge of the border of the Republic of Benin.
The Crew – Segun (Close buddy), Patrick (The Car delivery expert) and my humble self.
Condition of the day – Rainy, wet, cloudy and cold.

Segun and yours truly in the Taxi we chattered from Iyana-Iba, near LASU

The Benin Expressway that led us to the Cotonou car yards. It was a far contrast from Naija roads.

Okada riders even had their own dedicated lanes!

Finally we got to the car yards. Endless sea of cars here and there.

We entered yards upon yards upon yards...

Segun saw an Acura Legend which one of his friends needed and checked it out.

There was also a Lexus E300 Segun wanted to check out.

We had gone round for hours and I hadn't found the ride I was looking for. I was almost giving up. I muttered a prayer to God for help and direction...

...then I saw her! The ride that I had been looking for. It was just 3 cars away from where I stood. I called Segun and Patrick immediately.

She's a Nissan Primera, european version. And the actual spec I had been looking for.

The interior was neat (apart from dirt foot area caused by feet that had walked thru the rain soaked grounds) The car had all I wanted.

The seats were soft and comfortable to sit in. They kinda carressed you.

As if God wanted to assure me that this was the car, I got it at a good bargain!

Now what was left was for Patrick to clear the papers and deliver her to me by wednesday.

Got home so frigging tired and did a personal thanksgiving to the almighty.

Here are pictures taken at the Orange Academy Wall of Fame which took place on Sunday 20th April 2008 at Eko Le meridien Hotel, VI Lagos. I had made reference to it in my blog in an entry. Here are more pictures apart from that which you see in the entry. I had to dutifully select them as they were many. Click here to see others on the blog.

Dateline-Wednesday, March 26, 2008

I regret not taking a camera along with me on the event. The local photographer that was available screwed up the pictures he took (And thats partly because he wasn't using a digital camera!)
Thank God these ones were salvaged, though mine (where I was speaking) was not.

After the Seminar, organisers and speakers took photographs

Okay, we forgot one person, so we took it again

My Gadgets

Meet My Camera, Canny.
He's a Canon Powershot A570 IS (image stability)
I like the idea that his lens is detachable for accessorising.
Any images taken by me come through this dude.
And he's seriously loaded to handle the job.

Meet my laptop.
He's an Acer Aspire 4720Z.
He's my ever reliable notebook where I do a lot of stuff that go on my blogs.
