Da li smo bezbedni?

Nakon sto je moj intervju objavljen na Blic Zena portalu, osim pozitivnih poruka i komentara, primila sam i dosta pitanja o bezbednosti u Nigeriji. Neko me je cak i optuzio da ulepsavam stvarnost. To me je i inspirisalo da se malo dotaknem teme bezbednosti. Pre svega, zelim da naglasim da sam svesna da su svi…

Are we safe?

After my interview was published in the most popular Serbian women’s magazine “Blic Zena”, I have received many positive messages and comments. However, I have also received a lot of questions concerning security and safety issues in Nigeria. One person even accused me of “beautifying the reality”. Those questions and comments inspired me to write…

Malarija vs. Ja

Dok sam prosle nedelje razmisljala o sledecoj temi za pricu na mom blogu, ona se nekako sama od sebe nametnula. Bas u ponedeljak sam dobila dijagnozu od doktora da imam tezi oblik malarije. Da, da, dobro ste procitali – imala sam malariju. I to nije bio prvi put, vec sigurno dvadeseti da sam dobila malariju…

Malaria vs. I

Last weekend, as I was thinking about what should be the next topic for a new story on my blog, the topic somehow imposed itself on me. On Monday, I got diagnosed with a severe case of malaria. Yes, yes, you read it right – I had malaria. And it was not the first time,…

Bajka o lepoti (Kako sam u Nigeriji ponovo zavolela sebe)

Bila jednom jedna lepa, mlada devojka, sa prelepom, dugom magicnom kosom, punim ustima, visokim jagodicama, krupnim ocima, lepim grudima i zgodnim telom. Ta devojka je mnogo patila u zivotu, ali posto je bila toliko lepa, svi su je voleli i hteli da joj pomognu. A onda je jednog dana upoznala bogatog, savrsenog princa, koji je…

Jedan dan u Lagosu

Bila sam potpuno sama u “lounge”-u na aerodromu u Abudzi. Skoro da sam bila potpuno sama na celom aerodromu. Iako je bilo oko sest sati ujutru i vec je trebalo da pocnemo da se ukrcavamo na “prvi jutarnji let” za Lagos, saznala sam na pultu da ce let kasniti. Dok sam pila kafu i pripremala…

One day in Lagos

Only the receptionist and I were at the airport lounge in Abuja that morning. In fact, there was barely anyone else at the entire airport. Although it was about six o’clock in the morning and we were supposed to begin to board the “first-morning flight” to Lagos, I found out at the check-in counter that…

Abudza- grad u kom se Afrika spaja sa zapadom

Ako ste do sada citali moje price o Nigeriji, mozda ste stekli utisak da je cela Nigerija onako “africka”, sa trosnim kolibama, losim putevima, netaknutom prirodom, starom nosnjom, pesmama i igrama. Zbog toga sam odlucila da u sred pisanja o Nigerijskim obicajima i kulturi, ispricam malo o gradu koji toliko volim- Abudzi. Pre nego sto…

Abuja- the city where Africa meets “The West”

If you have been reading my stories about Nigeria, you might have gotten the impression that entire Nigeria is all “rustic”, with old huts, dilapidated roads, untouched nature, the traditional way of dressing, tribal singing and dancing. Hence, in the midst of describing Nigerian culture and traditions, I have decided to write a little bit…
