Nigeria 2012 - Day 7 (1/27)

We got a later start today because there was no running water in our rooms.  This was fixed by 10, and we were able to wash up.  We had lunch in my parents' room again (more yam, plantain, and stew, but this time with some beef, which was extra chewy, as I kinda like it).  After eating, we headed over to my dad's house to take care of some final things and visit with Vin and Julie.  After that we returned to the hotel, arriving around 3:30.

We made plans to check out of the hotel and head to the airport around 8 the next day.  This plan was actually in jeopardy because Enugu State (and perhaps the rest of the country) normally have an "environmental" on the last Saturday of the month - apparently during a period of a few hours (7-10 AM, I think) cars are not allowed on the roads.  This would have required us to be at the airport before 7 for a flight at 11.  Luckily, we got word that the "environmental" had been canceled.

The rest of the day was spent idly, with dinner (rice and stew with chicken) the only break from solitude.
