The 70th good thing about Lagos: Once a month, a quiet morning!
Ah! It's Saturday morning, 15 minutes before 10. Soon the honking and traffic noise will start again, but, for now, it's still blissfully quiet in our apartment. On the last Saturday of the month, Environmental Saturday, no traffic is allowed on the streets until 10 AM. Men and boys are out playing soccer in the streets and there are pedestrians here and there. But it's QUIET! It REALLY is a nice reprieve from the honking!
