This side of the Pacific, Lagosians prepare for the month by digging out their wellies and umbrellas while nursing the hope that praying the rain away might make a difference.

If you are visiting Lagos, staying sheltered from the elements does not have to keep you indoors staring at the walls of your hotel room or sitting on the couch because the city is such a superb place to enjoy yourself even when it is raining cats and dogs. Travel.Jumia.com has got ideas on how to take advantage of Lagos culture, recreation and food while keeping dry on a rainy day. For our quick list, read on.

Go and see a Movie
