Escape to New Lagos
For many, the term "Africa" is loaded, and explodes with visceral imagery when uttered. Regardless of our backgrounds and against our better judgment, many of us tend to paint our image of the continent with some broad brush or the other. Be it the stark black and white of an impression formed by a collectively troubled history, or the splashes of tropical hues that adorn the garments of the continent's people--a metaphor for their tendency to hope brightly in the darkest of night. We all see "Africa," and its baggage, in a certain light.
With this in mind, we invite you to come anew. Unpack that figurative and literal baggage, and consider New Lagos for your next travel destination. The ever-present pyramids of Egypt will continue to remain the same. The romanticism of Paris' Eiffel Tower will remain tempered by hordes of glaring camera lenses and chain-gangs of tourists toiling toward the top. But here, amidst the culture, food and sights of New Lagos, there is room aplenty for wide-eyed wonder, for discovery of the lavish unknown, and for the future to become a present you will want to unwrap again and again.
