Market


A very brief look at an open air market.  There are huge crowds of vendors like this at many major intersections in addition to the official “market” where you can buy just about anything.  Several of the ladies on the video were unhappy that I was filming them and let me know about it!

African Wildlife … sort of

A small band of monkeys lives in the compound where I stayed.  I have never known wild animals to be allowed to live and freely roam near where folks live – they are much too tasty!  Although I did not ask anyone, I am confident that these monkeys never leave this compound – they know somehow that they are safe inside the walls but not outside!

Mansions


The owner’s mansions on the compound where I stayed.  These homes are very atypical of a Nigerian house, although it is very common to build lavish mansions if you are super-wealthy – just as it is in the rest of the world!

Lunch

This is what lunch is like at a “food is ready” establishment – restaurants where food is pre-cooked and served as it is ordered.  Good times.

Marching

After morning assembly, everyone marches to class!
“When I finish [my] education, do you know what I want to be?  I want to be a doctor and serve in my country Nigeria.”
