LIFE/ A Week In Enugu


Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.

-Gustav Flaubert

I went for a Physiotherapy Convention at Enugu and for the first time in my 22 years, I travelled with the mindset of seeing and exploring. I’ve heard often times that a change of pace is sometimes needed to maintain one’s sanity. After this trip, I have to concur.

I didn’t see the sites, didn’t visit tourist attractions. I only documented the places and random things that surrounded me. I was situated near the University of Nigeria, Enugu Campus at a hotel close by. My days were spent attending events, both academic and otherwise as well as socializing, however awkwardly. 

It was immensely interesting noting the cultural differences, being a city creature myself. On the day before my schoolmates and I left, we went on a city tour viewing the rural parts of Enugu in all its glory. 

In all, I really enjoyed myself. Perhaps because of the people, perhaps because I find beauty in the mundane. Since a picture speaks a thousand words, here are several.

Out and about 



Everyday I was away from home, I felt a sense of freedom and I realized that this made the 9 hour journey worth it.
