Dealing with Lagos' Traffic/ Wartezeiten im Stau überbrücken

Traffic in Lagos can be crazy! For a way that would take 30 minutes without traffic you can spend hours- especially in the evening, when everybody is going home from work from Island. To be honest, sometimes I think it would be faster to walk (but don’t try it o!). Either you face it or you find something to do on Island until it is around 10pm (which is not possible if you have a family waiting for you at home or a long way or are sceptic of using public transport after darkness).
