A City You’ve Visited

Of all the cities I have been to on earth, I have to write about just one. That in itself, is a difficult task because many places come to mind.

Benin City, where I was born and brought up, comes to mind. There is also Warri, where I spent 6 years in secondary school. There’s Lefke, Gemikonagi, Kip Karpaz and Alefkeyası, all of which I visited in Northern Cyprus. And Istanbul, where I spent 5 nights. Or London?

Then there are cities like New Delhi where I visited for a day, and Gurgaon where I stayed for 3 week, both in India. There is also Ibadan, where I spent almost 2 weeks back in the year 2012. I also spent 2 separate nights in Cairo back in the year 2009. But of all these places, I think one city worth writing about, is Cotonou.
