Living in Lagos (December 2011)

This 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.

This is Comfort, one of the tailors who make traditional outfits for me.


This is the outfit Comfort wound up making for me.  At owambes, you can pay to have your photograph taken by a ‘nack am’ (slang for this sort of photographer) and a few hours later, they bring your photo to you.



Jollof rice, fried rice, moin-moin, fish and chicken – the standard Owambe meal.


It was my friend F’s (second from left) birthday and another friend took us all out for dinner at a Chinese restaurant.  It was fun.
