And after a long hiatus, I'm back with another Travel Vlog. I tried to do something a little different this time, showing the fun foodie moments we had, especially since the highlight of my trip, apart from being with my family, was eating at some great places. As if that's not enough, I also threw in some skincare info for when I'm flying, and my Black Panther experience. You also get to see my niece's camerawork and her Black Panther tribute! - All this, in less than 6 minutes. Am I great or am I great?

I was gonna make the title of this "A September to Remember" but I'm trying not to be too cheesy. I'm luring you in with other means. I was blessed enough to be gifted a ticket to see my family in the US for a few days, and I scored an AMAZING deal on a group trip to Morocco, which I've been wanting to visit for at least 2 years, so September was basically a whirlwind of jet-lag, travel and JOY!
For many Nigerians, and some of my African friends/colleagues with whom I've discussed it, the 'Black Lives Matter' movement is something that they can sympathize with, but don't feel that deeply. For many more, who are insulated and haven't experienced life outside their neighborhood/town/country, it's just another "oh, that happened? Wow!" story. That's my experience.
I don't say this to say we don't care or we don't see the injustices and feel sad and helpless when we hear the stories, or see them debated/discussed on social media or on the news; I say this to say that (to paraphrase a saying I've heard in many forms) it's the person whose shoe the stone is in that feels the pain most acutely. Some of us just cannot relate.
