You like it or hate it. There is no in between. Good music if you know where to look. When Felerason Kuti was still alive they had the best music in Africa. His son has taken over  the business. Good music, but the rebel is gone. Lagos is loud agressive and you need to be streetwise to survife and have a good time. They have an incredible public transport system that no foreigner can understand. It is based on thousands of small enterprices instead of a state run transport system. It works, although it looks like chaos. We used to go restaurant hopping. Every cource an other restaurant. We ate some wonderfull fresh grilled sole fish and even food ice cold beer. The Lagos Hilton Hotel is an experiance, since it is not a real HILTON hotel as we know them. They do however have some very cold beer and some very good hot and spicy suya (meat on scewers) and some real mean goatseye pepper soup ( the dogs down the steet love the goat eye when you throw it over the fence) I could never bring myself to eat the eye. You should try it, even if it is just for the fun. Atleast you have a story to tell your Grandchildren.

In order to stay safe and avoid getting sick the following items are a MUST : mosquito nets, insect/bug repellant, vaccinations for yellow fever, etc. ask your family doctor to be sure. To avoid traveller's diarrhea, eat only foods prepared at home and only drink bottled water or soda. For women, have a scarf handy - it's needed several times a day esp. to cover your head during prayers.
