things a bit more expensive here than other parts of Nigeria
In a nutshell
Nigerias Oil Capital is OK
We had a post meeting Dinner at the Blue Elephant which was as good as many of the Italian restaurants I have been to in Holland. Well dress people, both Nigerians and westener's some in causal dress. Food was very good. Expensive. A welcome change from the camp food.
