Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you must’ve have seen/heard us (Zikoko) making noise about a project named Jollof Road. Well, it’s finally underway.
If you don’t remember what it is, here’s a refresher course.
For 80 days, a team comprised of Fu’ad (head noisemaker), Toketemu (minister of enjoyment), and Kayode (video guy with sentient eyebrows) will be travelling across West Africa with their trusty guide, Tosin, and their bus captain, Taiwo.
They’ll be looking for amazing stories about food, culture, money, the impact of technology, and the people. The best part? At 9 am and at noon every day, they’ll be sharing those stories with the world at jollofroad.com.
On Day 1, Toketemu shared a journal on how to pack for an 80-day trip. Today again, she shared an entry about the team’s experiences crossing the border at Seme and navigating life in Cotonou, Benin Republic. To read today’s entry, click here.
