A Walk Through Mexicantown, Detroit

Originally posted in May 2017. Who would’ve thought Detroit, MI would have a vibrant Mexican community? When you think of Mexican immigrants, most uninformed people (like myself) would think Texas, California or New Mexico. But there are vibrant Mexican communities all across the MidWest with Chicago shockingly being the number 2 city for Mexican immigrants. Continue reading “A Walk Through Mexicantown, Detroit”

Houston Street Art

Originally posted April 2017. Anyone who knows me knows that I’m very much into the art scene. As an artist, I am drawn to creativity in form of colors and patterns. It’s one of the reasons I’m obsessed with street art. I travel a lot and one of the most exciting things I find inContinue reading “Houston Street Art”

Bahamian Paradise

Originally posted January 2017. My family and I went on a Christmas cruise to a few Caribbean islands including Key West, Florida, and Coco Cay Bahamas. These islands are so extremely beautiful. They’re pieces of paradise just a boat ride away from the States. Besides relaxing on the beaches, I went snorkeling and jet skiingContinue reading “Bahamian Paradise”

IContinue reading “Welcome To Miami”

Everyone was so nice and helpful, even when we asked the obnoxious “How do I get to there from here?”Continue reading “Manhattan Pt 2”

I went with two other friends and decided to see New York the way the locals do. We stayed awayContinue reading “Manhattan Pt 1”

I Love Autumn

This was originally posted October 2016. One of my favorite fall activities is going to an orchard to pick apples. I’ll be baking apple pie this season. A lot of cider mills also have corn mazes, hayrides, pumpkin patches and donuts (the number one reason I go to cider mills). Many of my Nigerian buddiesContinue reading “I Love Autumn”
