The Return

Lagos: returning from the interview

That moment post-interview, when the thing that stands between the team and sleep is the need to review the session’s data, a debrief with the rest of the team, and a little matter of navigating the city and Lagos’s legendary traffic. Negotiate with two okada riders to take three passengers – if caught by the numerous police the driver will be hassled and fined if caught with two passengers – the risk that is negotiated into the fare.

Like a team entering a knock-out tournament – we need to hit the ground running and improve from there.

Today – a city sliced and diced.
