By Chibuogwu Nnadiegbulam

Waking up this promised time, I knew

My dream was all over to come true

And yes, I should hold had butterflies in my stomach, otherwise than that instead, I woke up with a persistent gas-filled running stomach – surely in that place was no room left for butterflies.

This killjoy that had tormented me the day previous to (just don’t ask me the kind of I ate) succeeded in sneaking into my dawn in spite of me enduring pair tablets of Flagyl, one of that got stuck on its way from a high to a low position my throat.

But I still began my day with another two, nonetheless because I could not imagine each embarrassing situation of unofficially converting the dress on the airplane to my establish.

The GTBank was my first appearance of call on the day (oh please, don’t hail me too much), I had gone to cash a cheque and possibly buy USD at formerly.

However after getting my money, there was no USD for sale and in this way I fell back to the option of buying from an Hausa dowdy Janine Anthony had recommended.

He was selling at N430 to the dollar, the cheapest from our mean survey. I was supposed to qualified him at the Airport, or so I thought.

Anyways, in my long delayed morning walk to get some things sorted, I printed with~ my ticket confirmation and was headed in favor of the Murtala Mohammed Airport from at which place I would proceed to Dubai and therefore Amman for the FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup.

Okay, I did cease at Okosisi, a famous Supermarket cum Pharmacy at the same time Muri Okunoka street to buy (and relish) Tetracycline, else mum would not have left me in peace. She be able to worry sha.

Well, I got to the airport in time during check in and was done face to face with you know it. No, I take that back.

I would bear been done before you know it, granting that not for my igbo sister who kept scrutinizing my visa epistle again and again from the Arabic written any to the English written one, to exist sure she would be doing the as it should be thing to let me pass.

I went end all that, got my tickets; some to Dubai and the other to Amman, and was dexterous for my flight, but first I needed Dollars and to this place I was walking up and into disfavor from Departure D to E and back, in pry into of Sumaila, the Hausa guy, whom, while it turned out, I wasted my unpropitious earned airtime on.

He was as a matter of fact at Air Force barracks in Victoria Island. The identical VI I had come from, nowhere contiguous the Airport, and he was requesting I returned which would have been insane to do.

Moving on however, I got more change at a Bureau de change located at the Airport and proceeded to my flying’s boarding gate, of course from one side immigrations.

A whole new experience for me. And so as we took away aboard an Emirates Airline I smiled at the setting orb of day in view of a lot to a greater degree exciting moments.

It is my helper travel out of the country and my at the outset out of Africa. My first ~ up out of Nigeria was Ghana, ~ dint of. road.

For the over 7 hr fleeing to Dubai, I had dinner, watched a Hindi movie and slept.

When I woke up, we were smaller quantity than two hours from Dubai and such I helped myself with another movie to beware me through it (candid advice from Janine Anthony). And at round 4:30, we landed.

In conduct not to make it seem like I put on’t talk to strangers, I unquestionable to start a conversation with this guy I had noticed all the course from Nigeria.

He sat beside me in the airside bus that took us to the arrival gate and I asked him on the supposition that Dubai was his final destination goal he said no, that he would have ~ing connecting a flight to Guangzhou, China and which time I asked him what for, he declared, “business”.

I already knew right from whereas I saw him at MMA, what I was wrong about was that he would thwart in Dubai.

Anyways he told me he would exist in China for three weeks judgment returning to his Onitsha base through the jewelries he would buy.

According to him, they are cheaper in China and he sells wholesale while in Nigeria.

Anyways, we went our many ways and I went on ~y ultimate search for ‘B29’ from in what place I would board my next shower to Amman. When I finally lay the ~ation of it, I then took some time to prodigy at the magnificence of the Dubai International Airport and was back in time in quest of take-off.

After over 2hrs 30 minutes, we arrived Jordan and with the help of FIFA, my International Passport was stamped in the absence of any hassle.

And a driver from the tavern was already at the airport to cull me up to the Grand Palace Hotel.

His credit is Yousef Yaqoub and he was in fact friendly. He gave me access to the wifi in the car and as long as we spoke on the long drift to the hotel, he seriously told me to exist careful about the dead sea for the reason that there was a case in court concerning it, and when curious me asked the infraction of law, he said the dead sea was murdered and it’s common ancestry flowed into the Red sea.

The look on on our way to the house of entertainment was awesome with largely clay colored storey buildings dissipated on hills in Amman.

When I got to the inn, I finally met Sonja of the AIPS whom I communicated by for about three weeks with regards to the AIPS Young Reporters Programme, Roselyn, who is the Secretary General of the International Sports Press Association and three other Young Reporters who had arrived in the sight of me, Katie from England, Victor cut Brazil and Tracey from Cameroon.

I was given time to make fresher up and rest a bit judgment coming down for lunch where I tried noodles that was prepared through Sesame oil and did not pass beyond a spoon. Eventually I orderly for White rice and beef sauce.

From lunch, we went on our before anything else assignment at the official opening of fan zone for Jordan 2016.

Back at the hotel, we had dinner and that time my sleepy head managed to set down in writing my first article of the AIPS Youn Reporters Programme near the front of I succumbed to nature’s freezing cuddle.
