Going the Owambe way.

Today, I had to attend a team-mate's wedding. I was sceptical about wearing my 'Iro and buba', thanks to Hyderabadi 'NEPA' for taking their light. The iro and buba was the only ironed outfit I had, every other was rumpled and there was no light, so I jejely decided to go the Nigerian way. My black skin was not the only reason for the stares, my iro and buba turned me to the TV at the wedding.

  1. You look smashing! I think the Iro and Buba was a great idea since most of the Indians were wearing Saris and stuff.

  7. Lol.. I love your posts. I totally relate with your experience in India. I lived in Mumbai for 18 months working for an Oil and Gas field servicing company. I lived in Thane(Navi Mumabi) and did the whole Bandra, Colaba party scene. i will never forget the stares and the frustrations.. and also the Incredible India catch phrase. Enjoy your time there.

  9. you iro and buba is on point! So nice to "meet" another aiesecer! i've only met one African/black aiesecer in Beijing in the two years i've been living here. I guess they prefer to go to other countries. I've had India on my mind since.......
