I have a long time friend called Thandi. I met her in 2001 during my first year at the Manchester Metropolitan University. We have since been friends through thick and thin. I like to call her “My Ride or Die Chic” You know that kind of friend who has seen you at your lowest and at the same time rocked with you during the time of abundance. That’s who Thandi is to me. To cut the long story short, Thandi is from Botswana. The first time she told me her country, I was like “huh? Where be that?” Lol. It was from her that I learnt that Botswana is a prosperous African country of about 3 million people (only!) in the southern region of Africa. Botswana is a country blessed with diamonds and shares boarders with South Africa, Zimbabwe and Namibia. So I find myself in Botswana with Thandi after a long driver through Johannesburg in South Africa and guess who drove the whole 450km?. Lol. I will be here for a total of 2 weeks before I return back to the UK. The whole trips has been so surreal and trust that I will sit down to dedicate a thorough post. For now, I am enjoying what it is to be in a prosperous African nation. The prosperity is so amazing that it almost brings tears to my eyes knowing that this is something Nigeria desperately needs. I will be sure to update this blog with full details of my trip once I am back in the UK. Until then… stay blessed!
