Nanika atta everybody
I was meant to start work at Molaka waters today but you know what they say about the best laid plans. (If you do please enlighten me because I don’t actually know………seriously I don’t) It began raining at approximately 1am, I was glad because it provided me respite from the humidity which was seriously affecting my beauty sleep. I woke up around 7:30am and it was still raining, my friend Muyiwa made me breakfast and we waited for my Uncle Waidi (Kabiyesi*) to pick me up to take to me the factory where I will be spending the week working.
Unfortunately the heavy rains had caused some flooding in some parts of Ibadan bringing parts of the city to a halt. I have never experienced such rains in my life, it rained heavily and continuously for hours and hours. It got to a point that I stopped using my umbrella. While waiting, I used the opportunity to visit a friend I hadn’t seen in over 20 years and met her new baby- that was the only bright spot of my day. Kabiyesi picked me up around 13:00, by this time I was miserable and my running training had been ruined. I was meant to start work at 10am. Driving through the puddles of pots felt like going through a timed rally race. We had to make a couple of stops on our way to the factory; we finally arrived there at 4pm. By this time the business day was over and the factory had closed.
