I haven’t been to Nigeria over 10 years so when my dad told me that my family was going back to Nigeria for the summer, tears stared to follow down my face. There were many preparations to go to Nigeria but I was up for it. When my family and I were going to the airport I new my dream to go to Nigeria was coming true. My family and I arrived to Nigeria and the sweet smell of Nigerian food sweep across my nose and I new I was Home. The sky was a lovely baby blue in Abuja, the capital of Nigeria. My family and I stayed at Citilodge Hotel in Abuja, our rooms were very clean and the staffs were warm welcoming. In the Abuja the restaurants are amazing; we ate delicious food such as Suya, Spaghetti surprise, Pounded Yams, Dodo, Akara, Chin-Chin, Meat Pie, fried rice, jollof rice, Unripe Plantain Porridge and etcetera. My dad and mom wanted to visit our relative in the village. I’m a village girls so I loved the village, when we arrived my entire cousins came to give me a hug, I felt like I belonged and I will never forget that day. I met a lot of people I didn’t know in the village and they were so happy to see me, I will never forget the smile on there face. I loved my grandmother cooking, whenever she was cooking I use to sneak in to her kitchen to taste her famous foods. Hands down I knew I loved the Village more then the city, the fresh smell of the air and food was better then the city. When I left the village with my family I stared to cry because the bond that I created with few of my cousin and aunt was unbreakable. The vacation was coming to end and I was going to miss Nigeria, but I will never going to forget it.
