We left Muritala Mohammed airport on Saturday 21st 2014 and arrived Sao Paulo after an eight hour long flight and for another three hours to our hotel Ibis.
We couldn’t watch the Nigerian match for the first half because we were trying to get our hotel room keys but that was the down time. The trip was interesting and despite the fact that it was eight hours we did not feel it, we had a nice time on the plane because we were all Nigerians so we moved around freely, interacted and even took pictures. Brazil is a friendly place and even though they don’t speak english they are willing to assist you. Our hotel receptionists have been very helpful as they gave us access to the internet to browse and send messages to our loved ones.
The only challenge is the meal as we were all looking for the stew after we were served rice with a watery substance that looks like corn in water. Aside that everything has been eventful coupled with the fact that the weather is not so cold and Nigeria made her country proud even the Ivorian fans at the hotel were cheering for Nigeria’s victory agaist Bosnia.
The World Cup has indeed united Africans regardless of where they come from. We look forward to the match on Wednesday against Argentina and hopefully progressing to the round of 16.
