The second episode of our photo album is here…after four months of hibernation…in case you haven’t noticed we are in the Rainy Season, and our cameras don’t normally work in the rainy season (Freaks of Technology, tell me about it). But after much praying and fasting (yes we just ended the Ramadan Season), Our Cameras were granted a few moments of sight, to capture and to captivate those who will go through these our Memories in Print.
Yes it has been an event filled week (26th July to 2nd August 2014)…I just learnt today that Lyriversity has reached the Deciduous Plains of New-Zealand (the city of 100 volcanoes), in fact it has even navigated the River Ganges, explored the Himalayas (I hope) and came crushing, no descending smoothly into the Lateritic Soils of Eastern Nigeria.
Whether you move by car, or by plane, or by bike or bicycle, or by Leg-geedis benz still, you are welcome to join us as we share with you our week in a thousand words.

Nigerian lower class: life and direct, no sugar-coating…It’s simply hot like drying sawdust on live-coal, no simile.

My Week by Okoye Chukwudi Charles Ezeamalukwuo

This last week (23rd to 29th of March, 2014) was fairly uneventful until the Friday and early Saturday. The routine of the week was quite boring…(For a jobless Graduate), Wake up, brush, eat, shit, press phone and sleep…until University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN) came calling.
28th of March, 2014 was the Convocation ceremony for the Graduating Students of the great citadel of Learning, firmly planted somewhere in the dense bushes of South Eastern Nigeria. Refusing to be over-ran by weeds, UNN has stood defiantly against the odds to keep restoring the diginity of (Bush) man…or so they say…he smiles+

Enjoy my Memories in Print…it’s my week in a thousand words.
