Living in Lagos (July 2011)

This regular feature shows, through pictures, what living in Lagos is like for me.  It’s a picture-heavy post that will hopefully help you get the vibe of Lagos from a particular perspective.  I hope you enjoy it.

A few months ago, my mum had a memorial service and reception for her late parents.  Here are a few pictures from the event.

My brother, my sister-in-law (married to a different brother) and I.  Pink ‘lace’ and blue ‘gele’ was the dress code for the event.

My mum loves to laugh

My mother and sister-in-law supervising the waiter.  The supervision wasn’t really necessary but my mum always wants her parties to go perfectly.
