“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” –Mark Jenkins

Day 44 – 17th June 2009 – Wednesday, Lagos.
Went for a brief walk into the historic town of Lagos and spent the rest of the day on the beach. We then went to the bar for a couple of beers (intermixed with tequila and a very strange and vivid turquoise shot) before coming home for some food and a shower. We headed back to the bar about 8, which was a mistake. I think we got home after 4am – very much worse for wear having been taken round various bars in the town by the barman and his mates.
