so let me tell you about the madness that is lagos.... ok, it started off pretty tame, kel and i were poached by an old man as we got off the bus who took us to his house to stay.... was actually a really cool little one bedroom apartment on the top of his house with ocean view..... (only one double bed tho... at this stage kel and i are getting pretty used to sleeping in the same bed). we spent the first few days just hanging in our cool appartment, catching up on tv and cooking for each other like an old married couple.... it was raining most of the time and kel had run out of money so this was perfect.... this period really served to lull us into a false sense of security... Ęthis was fine, none of the alcohol mad bonk fest vibe that i had been warned about... maybe thats only in summerĘ we thought... WRONG!!! on the third day a medievil festival started... we had no idea it was on, it just sort of popped up..... was pretty cool, everyone dressed up as soldiers, kings and queens, beggers nuns... the works, including one pantless weapons selling guy who flashed his bum evertime he bent over... or just moved!!! hahahaha, each to their own i guess. there were also roaming performers everywhere, jugglers, jesters, dancers, snake charmers, and medievil bands...
so this is where we met the clowns..... three of the mischeif makers there were, carlos, ruey and pedro.... after seeing them on the steets during the day they turned up in the same bar as us that night... what follows is a bit of a blur.... at some stage of the night we ended up at the performers bar, hanging out with all the performes, the place was packed and we were all out on the street dancing to the medievil bagpipe band.... when this place closed the crowd headed to a club like place were the night passed to morning with lots of dancing... was a really great night... and i got to have the bed all to myself in the morning as kel went home with one of the clowns (well to his van) hahahaha!!!! ok so this all sounds pretty fun.... but lagos is a small town, and we were haunted by these clowns... everywhere we went they happened to be there, they were really fun to go out with but such randy little buggers.... a lot of the time was spent fending them off.... after a couple of days of this we decided enough was enough, it was time to get out..... but there were no buses for two days... so we were stuck with the clowns.... hahahaha oh well, at least they were good inpiration for our juggling (yes, we are going thru a juggling phase that the moment).
