What sets Uyo apart from other cities is the tremendous release from the burden of daily life that it offers us. In the past, we were always involved in certain events that helped alter our sense of time.
Our general occupations such as fishing, farming, hunting, trading, etc. were often suspended. This paved way for all the festivals, carnivals, parades, sacred rituals, etc. to proceed. It gave us the experience of being able to step out of ourselves and watch time standstill.
Presently, civilization has become the order of the day, and daily hustles have taken away the joy of the past. The burden of waking up, and preparing to face the vicissitude of life has blown away lots of things. The trials, hardships, poverty-striven experiences have turned a once happy generation into a difficult, and sad one.
It is in this regard, that Uyo has sought to change or relieve us of some of these burdens. With deep thinking, the government found a way to transcend our past experiences to the realm of the 21st century.
The love for Uyo made them erect buildings, recreation centers, roads, and good linking systems. Watching the city turn into a beautiful place had a radical effect on all of us. It made us forget about work, and at times responsibilities; all we encounter is a pleasure and play.
Uyo gives us outstanding and dramatic moments in the presence of heightened, and theatrical places. As long as we have these seductive places, our moods are strongly altered and our subconscious insinuates play and pleasure.
Once we step into one or all of these places, we begin to feel the sharp contrast with reality. And we start to crave more of such experiences daily.
Did you know that the government has been able to seduce us with places that help to create moments when the world stops and fantasy takes over? Yes, we yearn for activities and experiences that civilization has stolen from us, and all those magical places have been set up for all of us to enjoy.
