Long Lasting Look at Lagos

Tuesday, 14 June 2016


From the trudging through the city of Lagos coupled with the intense sunshine that burned our bones to the "Sorry, Miss...no photos allowed here," (Most times said more brashly), I was still able to put together a pictorial mash-up of my week circling Tafawa Balewa Square (TBS), Lagos Island and parts of Victoria Island.




From my little corner of the bus




Nobody messes with the busman




Hey, look...it's us!







The act of shadowy chit-chattery









First stop: The National Museum







My friend, Ore and I were so disheartened to find out that we weren't allowed to take photos anywhere else but in the museum courtyard.
Our tour guide was the perfect combination of creepy and funny. We couldn't really make out what he was saying half the time and when we did it was mostly hilarious









Chinenye is off-the-wall










Ore in colour











Phalanges against the Nok wall







At least one of us was graceful about the situation







Girl meets plant







Musings at Muson







Got our grub on at Grubs in Freedom Park food court







Red petals overlooking the pathway







Knees pulled in







Friends decided to stop at Rele







Rails at Rele







The keke driver was having a heated argument with one of his passengers, but that did not stop me







Views from Freedom Park







Caught in rails with Alex










Chips again because I'm the most basic person culinary-wise

































This was the literally the only thing I could afford at the Lagoon Restaurant.
P.S: If you're interested in eating here, don't hesitate to bring a wad of cash to avoid having a major heart attack like I did the second I opened the menu.
(Emphasis on WAD)







Sipping it down to the very last Naira. Aha! Brokeness never tasted so good






















Stopped at one of my favorite places, TerraKulture which I like to call an all-in-one. A food lounge, an art gallery, event place for plays, a book-hub and a craft shop.
Seconds after I took this photo, an angry man walked up to our table and croaked a "Put that camera down!"
Plus, no one can even guess what I ate.
(Hint: Rhymes with ships)













Blood Rain at Art Twentyone







Hope for my Nation







Firm faith in the Lord












Dusky clouds fluttering over masts, silhouettes and me
