"Subheadings are overrated" - Mark

Foodie moment

Another Lonely Planet recommendation, A Forja. The line at the door almost scared Mark off but as we came out late (9.30pm) all the early diners were finishing up so we were in pretty quickly. Once again we were tempted with the (not complemetary) starters and gave into our hunger just as our food arrived :( (Don't worry, in typical Lisa fashion I fashioned a doggy bag out of a napkin and we took the unfinished stuff away for lunch the nxt day! Hey we had paid for it!). The mains were huge pieces of grilled salmon and Portuguese chicken (not peri peri!)


Cultural moment

As with any touristy beach destination, party drinking boat cruises are anything but rare in Lagos. We had the funny opportunity of witnessing more than a few girls being dragged back home down the streets to their hotels by their embarrassed partners. To say they were drunk would be an understatement, paralytic would be a better word!

Wow moment

Pinhao beach is another beach in Lagos that we spent the majority of the second day sunbathing at. We met up with our friend Jelise again and just chilled in the sun and relaxed (when we weren't being told to be quiet from a hypocritical snoring lady!). The beach itself is surounded by tall sandy cliffs and has some cool caves to explore. It was a stunningly beautiful day!



What we learnt today

After spending most of our time each day at the last few places checking out must see tourist attractions, it was a nice change of pace not really having to worry about sights in Lagos, because there really wasn't any. So just having a few days of chilling out at the beach was some well welcome R & R.
