It is the middle of the week. Friday is closerrrrrrrr and I’m glad. Work has been a bit hectic and I’ve really been allowing tasks slip through the cracks of my to-do list. I end up achieving many minimal goals but, my main tasks are left ignored.
I rush out to join the Staff Bus, and I’m sad, tired and frustrated on my way home.
Then, I get here…
At this point, I start to smile. I’m excited. I love this rig. It should not be where it is (environmentally speaking – Yes, there is more to environmental than being trapped at home till 10am, every last Saturday of the month :?:?😣)
Going further, I see the bright and colourful branded houses that herald your entry into the famous Lagos Market. We go up the beautiful Eko Bridge. Then, I see…
According to Wikipedia, the military-hat shaped National Arts Theatre was built during the military regime of Olusegun Obasanjo. It has a 5,000-seater Main Hall with a collapsible stage, and two 700-800 capacity cinema halls, all of which are equipped with facilities for simultaneous translation of 8 languages; among others.
The National Arts Theatre was designed and constructed by Bulgarian construction companies and resembles the Palace of Culture and Sports in Varna, Bulgaria (completed in 1968), the National Arts Theatre Lagos being the bigger of the two. Got That Here.
I have never been to the National Theatre. Never ever. I see it everyday and I have never been in it.
I need to fix that. I promise to take pictures when I go and blog about it. I hope I can find FESTAC ’77 artefacts there.
There is way too much beauty in this world, for me to allow myself focus on the dark clouds only. So, please, look around you and find the beauty in traffic today.
Here’s to seeing the beauty of Lagos in Traffic,
