This is what lunch is like at a “food is ready” establishment – restaurants where food is pre-cooked and served as it is ordered. Good times.

After morning assembly, everyone marches to class!
“When I finish [my] education, do you know what I want to be? I want to be a doctor and serve in my country Nigeria.”
For my friends who need subtitles when folks don’t speak with a Midwestern accent, a partial transcript of this video is included here:
Kofi: Just like United States of America is a melting pot of cultures, Nigeria … the Federal Republic of Nigeria, is a melting pot of many cultures. And, you know we have many languages. But the major languages we have is [are] the one popularly known as “wazobia”: the three main languages we speak here in Nigeria. “Wa” stands for [is a word from] Yoruba – “come”; “Zo”, Hausa – “come”; and “Bia” stands for Igbo – “come”. So in Yoruba in the morning the greeting is always “Ikaaro”. And in Igbo you have “Ibolachi”. Hausa: “Ina Kwana”. They are all beautiful languages. But apart from these languages we have other 250 languages spoken by smaller ethnic groups. Also within these languages we have dialects – over 2,000 dialects that they speak here. Nigeria is really a beautiful country where we have unity in diversity.
