Against All Odds

I am standing on the road shoulder on a busy Lagos street street. The traffic stretches out turning a curve away from sight. Getting out of the gridlocked was the only thing on my mind.

Ubers were getting ridiculously expensive (especially in traffic) so I decided to take a cab. Danfos were not an option. Little did I know that by the time I would get home later that night, I would no longer be the same person standing on the side of that busy road.
