    ireport anniversary meet up in Abuja, Nigeria


    The day was going well, and the  weather was great for hanging out and  even though the nation's capital  was still reeling from the bomb blast  at the UN house, the Muslim  festival of Eid-El-Fitr provided a calm and  almost somber atmosphere  that many people were taking advantage of.


    We   met at the venue of the meet up hosted by fellow ireporter Sigho,   determined to enjoy the day. As we got around the anniversary   assignment, there was a lot of laughter as we interviewed each other.  We  stuck different poses for the pictures and then left to comb the  city  for landmarks we hoped wouldn't be too easy for CNN to guess.


    Once   we were out, the day had advanced and people were wrapping up the   festivities of the holiday, but we managed to find landmarks to pose   beside. We even took a picture with a CNN fan.  It was really a great   experience and I thank CNN for the anniversary meet up as this has   provided an opportunity to get to know my fellow ireporter(s).
