I am amazed at people who travel to the other side of the world, and reaching there (instead of wanting to immerse and discover this new world), they'd rather want to hang with fellow Nigerians.
Go meet locals, befriend local people, learn about their culture, how they live and forget about Nigerians and Africans.

You're spot on, sir. One of the survival skills I've learnt since living overseas is integration. Integrating with the locals of any country you find yourself is the best way to understand their culture, tradition, food, and every day Dos and Don'ts. Another survival skill I've learnt is to avoid places with a large concentration of Nigerians.

Well said bro, especially the bolded part.

I understand you, bro. Like you, I'm also in a bi-racial marriage relationshi that's blessed with a beautiful daughter. One of the ways I've been able to stay trouble-free is by avoiding places where there are lots of Nigerians. Although there are times when I crave for that 9ja 'how far, wetin dey' conversation which nothing compensates for. To satisfy that crave, I usually hang out with a few of the most responsible 9ja guys here. Enjoy your life in New Zealand..

you might want to visit papatoetoe, South Auckland. There is an Edo woman selling african food and making hair there...you will see black people there. Jump on the train and get off at papatoetoe....ask around for african braids shop near the vegetable store or find your way to the shopping centre...its should be abt 7 min walk from train station.
