How does this sound….Are you attracted to the idea of going for a very early morning walk along the mostly private Bojo Beach, before taking a ride to the coast to visit talented batikers, then back in the evening to enjoy a plate of Red Red or Kele Wele to the sound of Afrobeats before you rest to wake up to a journey up north, to visit skilled artisans of indigo dyeing, kente weaving and raffia weaving, with a salute to the Black Star before a workshop learning how to make glass beads as you make your way back to the apartment before dancing the night away at a top cocktail bar to end the week. Is that more up your “Oxford” street?
Does this have your name all over it? Ready to #gofastwithus ?
