If someone had told me a month ago, that I would be leaving Nigeria for USA, I would have considered it a very expensive joke.
Following our successful visa interview, feels right to inform this amazing Nairaland family that my family and I have finally touched down Washington DC. This would be our new home for now.
Feels refreshing to eventually leave Nigeria for good.

It"s freezing cold here, would keep tabs of my daily experiences here in the USA on this thread, but before that, tips on how to survive this chill would most importantly be appreciated.

Lagos to Ethiopia.

We used Ethiopia airlines and as a result had to stop by at Adis ababa.
this was basically my first time of using a plane, and I felt strong nausea especially during take off. I felt my head turning onionon. but still had to maintain that all was normal.

flight to ethiopa was an enjoyable one. took us over 6hours to get to Adis Ababa at the speed of over 720km/hr.
was afraid through the flight, so had to stay awake all through. watched some blockbuster movies from the small tv in front of my seat b4 retiring to the videos in my phone and then musics.

The Ethiopians are really amazing people, and have consistently made a beautiful home out of their country. the view from the sky was glorious as everywhere was lighted up.

They have a much more super airport compared to Lagos international airport and they are very proud of their achievements.

I took some pictures before and after landing in Adis ababa

DUBLIN TO WASHINGTON DC

We took a different flight to Dublin for our connecting flight to washington dc.
Adis ababa to dublin took us another 7hrs and 8hrs from dublin to washington dc even on a faster plane of over 830km/hr,

did i forget to mention, i ate virtually everything they brought in during the flight, afterall, i paid for it all.
we got served every 2hours first with the main dish of fried rice and chicken with some sandwich and biscuits and juice of choice to send it down. then they brought coffee and tea and then back to the main dish.
I trusted my stomach not to disappoint and throughout the journey, it didn't.

we finally landed washington dc after 21hrs of memorably intriguing flight.

Our visa application process was just like every other USA visa applications.

Was not all rosy from start until it started to get interesting and then finally approved.

Of you sometime want to leave Nigeria, you really need a lot of patience with the visa process. The embassies would try to break you.
Get all you need ready and always be ready when they call on you.

I love food soooo much.
And this place will basically be a dream place for me.
I have been able to see around this new home, America has one major problem of having just too much food.
Food here is just everywhere, work home street, and it's just the cheapest thing you can come by.
So we came back from the airport to meet this extremely awesome kitchen.
I simply don't know where to start from.

I will kill myself with food here.
In lasis's voice, "murder me with food".

I think I will enjoy my stay here.

So you're comfortable snapping pictures of someone's kitchen and posting it on nairaland for strangers?

You couldn't put them on a blog.

Even if you've been remote viewing other people's kitchens way before you set foot in America, must you act like this?

I know you folks dont take correction but cant you correct yourselves before someone mentions it?

You know, you could at least get your own place then upload all the pictures you want.
