Description

This book is a travelogue describing the real life experiences of its author when he travelled from the ancient city of Kano, northern Nigeria, to the cities of Abuja, the capital of Nigeria; Manchester, the second largest city of England; and London, the capital of the United Kingdom, currently overtaking Paris as the most visited city in the world. The book seeks to achieve three goals: educating, enlightening and entertaining its readers. It begins with the background of the traveler. The second chapter describes the methodology used by the author in sourcing information, documenting facts and noting his experiences. Chapter Three is dedicated to the author's experiences in Abuja where he had his UK Visa interview. His experiences in Manchester and London constitute chapters four and five of the book, respectively. In Chapter Six, the author describes the lessons he had learnt from the experiences gained from the travels and the conduct of the international conference, which was the main reason for the travels to the three great cities. One of such lessons is that "you do not know when you do not read; you know less when you do not travel, and very little when you are undigital."show more
