Our new home in Yola Nigeria

Well, we have arrived and are mostly trying to overcome jet lag at the moment. Three days in Nigeria does not make us experts, but here are a few details that we have noticed already . . .
1. The Nigerian people are quick to say "You are welcome!" meaning welcome to Nigeria. And they mean it.
2. Driving within a lane is really not necessary and apparently frowned upon here.
3. There are very few white people in the city of Yola.
4. The sweet potatoes are about 2 feet long.
5. Apparently you can fit an entire family of 6 on a motorcycle, no problem.
6. There are thousands of goats running amuck who seem to find their way home every night.
7. The AUN is doing amazing things and we are happy to be a part of it all!

Wanna see our new home? We'll try adding some photos, but we're new to this blogging thing.

  1. Love this! I love the points of learning, especially the "Goats amuck" I grew up taking care of a dairy herd of goats. They are "their own animal!" Love & safe wishes your way.
