Today is 🇳🇬 Nigerian Independence Day. It is a day that is celebrated in Nigeria every year on October 1st. It marks Nigeria’s proclamation of independence under the British rule on October 1, 1960. In 1914, the Southern Nigerian protectorate was combined with the Northern Nigerian Protectorate to create the colony and protectorate which has the boarders of modern-day Nigeria. In the late 1950s, the call for independence of territories of Africa and the decline of the British Empire led to the country being granted independence in 1960 as the federation of Nigeria. Three years later, the constitution was amended and the country was declared the Federal Republic of Nigeria with Nnamdi Azikiwe, the first president.
So after this summary, I planned to fly to Nigeria from Miami on a connecting flight to New York JFK and London Heathrow with American Airlines and then to Lagos with British Airways.

Here is my first plane flight as we sit and wait for boarding announcement at Gate D12 at Miami Airport.
A nice beautiful moonshot as the passengers are sleeping while I’m wide awake. Maybe the flight attendants are serving as snacks and beverages for free. I chose biscoff cookies and a Pepsi to drink.
Finally, I am approaching JFK as my flight will come to a finish line for completion of my first connecting flight.
