"From the beginning we always thought that this would be a city for the middle income. "We know that the middle income has grown significantly in the past 15 years and we know that it is going to grow even more." 'Living with granny' Still, some residents of Lagos feel that there are already many housing options - they just cannot afford them. Properties are pricey and landlords typically require annual, not monthly rent payments. Banking consultant Abimbola Agbalu tells me that he has to live at his grandmother's house, because renting his own place would be too expensive. Image caption Some housing projects remain unoccupied because they are pricey "If I wanted to rent a house where I would prefer in Lagos I would be spending at least 80% of my pay cheque to move in because I would have to pay two years' rent upfront, agency fees and maintenance fees. "And from then on I would have to spend another 60-70% of my pay cheque every year on rent, which doesn't make sense. "The problem is not that there are no houses. If you look around, there are empty houses all over Lagos; some can even go a year without being rented out. "The problem is that people can't afford them. We need better alternatives." Refurbishing shipping containers One Nigerian company is thinking inside the box in order to provide a cheaper housing option - by making homes out of cargo containers.
Now there is a second strange illusion: every time Adam speaks, the slope gets gentler. Weird. The day goes by quickly and we finish by tackling a red run, which leaves me feeling immensely pleased with myself. Freeriding involves skiing down vertical surfaces. Are is the sort of town where you bump into such folk Are, in Swedens Jamtland region, is hardly a familiar name to most British people. One reason for this is that there have been no direct flights there from the UK until now: easyjet started flying to Are-Ostersund from Gatwick last month. Another reason is that we were pronouncing it incorrectly it sounds more like aura. It is Swedens largest downhill ski area and regularly hosts major competitions. Its also a small town, with a community feel. I know that because Adam keeps introducing me to his mates. One of them sweeps down to us while chatting on his mobile.

Are flights actually cheaper on Friday the 13th? The Telegraph 13/01/2017 By Hugh Morris Provided by The Telegraph The cost of flying this Friday affordable flights to vegas from cedar rapids iowa (the 13th) is as much as 44 per cent cheaper than the average cost of departing on any other day in JanuaryCREDIT:THIS CONTENT IS SUBJECT TO COPYRIGHT./LESTER LEFKOWITZ Friday the 13th is more closely associated with black cats and horror films than it is cheap flights. But over the past few years holiday firms have started claiming that the cost of air travel does indeed fall on the spooky date with the savings attributed to a collective fear of flying on what's often called the unluckiest day of the year. Research from flight comparison website Kayak.co.uk, looking at the 20 most popular departures from UK airports, found that the cost of flying this Friday (the 13th) is, on average, five per cent cheaper. However, for those willing to ignore superstition and take to the sky, savings for some destinations are far more significant. Flights to Gran Canaria, for example, fall from 63 to 36 for the 13th - a drop of 44 per cent. The website carried out the same research last year, for flights on Friday, May 13, and found savings of as much as 41 per cent. Provided by The Telegraph A spokesperson for Kayak said: Flight prices are very much based on demand when demand is up they rise and when it is down they fall. Our data, therefore, indicates that many are choosing not to travel on Friday the 13th. Another flight comparison website, Momondo, found that flights were as much as 16 per cent cheaper flying this Friday compared with last Friday (Jan 6). A spokesperson said the site found a "slight price drop" but it was "hard to pinpoint superstition or other market forces as a reason".
