Yeah, I have some family there so it's a yearly trip for me. Fortunately my friend in Zurich suggested I party with him for a few nights on my way. Worked out wonderfully.
Just for the record Lagos Intl (Murtala Mohammed INtl) is a god awful airport. I nearly had a meltdown a few times when going through security and immigration. Then on my 13 hour flight to Houston I fucking realize (actually remember since they charged me during the same flight last year) that United charges for booze on transatlantic flights (
Highlights of the trip out of the country are I have some amusing stories to tell (like my 7 hour wait for my flight to back to Lagos in Enugu airport - mind you this is in the gutted airport that's somehow still taking flights), I successfully got a $1000+ bottle of wine back to the US for appraisal and hopefully selling it (unfortunately at 50 years old it's probably ruined given it's shady storage), and some kick ass wood carvings I bought for cheap underneath a bridge.
