Good Morning All
A friend of mine has asked if it was possible to use a Laptop in a Molue in Lagos , I saw the message on his status and it just made me laugh , what a great start to a sunny day. Well i have been imagining what it would be like to use your laptop in a molue. I only used the Molue once or twice and that was after I had left Nigeria and went back home for a holiday. It was a thrill to get on the Molue, one of many traditions I remember about the great state of Lagos State. At times I thought i was in a yellow taxi from New York , it was only a matter of time before I pinched myself and realised I was in Nigeria.
Molue is a yellow bus with tattered seats with passengers packed like sardines in the bus. These Molue's are like death traps certainly not road worthy but does the business in transporting lots of people to their destination. It also a cheap form of transport. If you are to enter one ensure you have bottled water u are likely to collpase because of the heat , if you do not have your own bottled water you are going to be approached to buy pure water. I think you could use your laptop in the Molue but you are likely to attract attention to yourself and the chance of your laptop arriving with you at your destination is very slim indeed. I think because of the way the Molue is jam packed it would be difficult to use ur Laptop but I think you can get away with a blackberry or PDA but once again you are asking for trouble. I remember attracting the Area Boys because I wore this panda wrist watch and white with trousers, I stood up like a sore tomb, yes Londoner abi American the bobo e ooo. Na GOD save me after a few tips of dosh they let me go, it did not help that I also had jerry curls it was the fashion statement in those days. Yellow tee shirt, white trouses , white tennis shoes feeling funky catching a Molue thinkiing it will be nice to explore Lagos streets like Oyinbo people do.
Anyway if you ever try to enter Molue in Nigeria here are some ground rules ooo
