Lagos - An Emerging African city

-Lagos-
Nigeria

Lagos is the most populated Nigerian city, the second most populated in Africa, and expected to overtake Cairo as the most populated by 2015, according to the U.N. According to Nigerian census figures from 2006, the population of Lagos City State was 17.5 million {2006}. Lagos is a metropolis situated on various islands separated by creeks and lagoons, it is a prominent African Economic & Financial, Cultural, Entertainment, Transportation & logistics center and is rated a Beta city according to the GaWC global cities ranking, having one of Africa's largest and most busy Seaport and Airport systems respectively.
Lagos as a city faces a lot of Uban challenges like many others in the developing world, the city however is facing up to these challenges and tackling them in interesting and innovative ways. A lot is going on in the way of improved urban life such as the planned rail system {UC} & improvement in other transportation infrastructure

I'd love to see some more street level pics of this city! Some average street scenes from different areas of town.

An Interesting Feature of the city of Lagos are its unique gridlocks, popularly known as "Go-Slow". I consider them interesting not because of what they are, but because of what goes on in them, in the traffic slug trail, that can go on for Kilometers on end, you would find people peddling {or selling}, all sort of things --- You just have to name it, from Cooking utensils, to Snacks, to female cosmetics, to News Papers and Journals, to Clothing and accessories, sport materials or even currency conversion!

Lagos for their physical and cultural characteristics seems to me a very interesting city. I know I live a very significant economic growth but still has many challenges ahead.

This proposal seemed very striking on a floating villa in Makoko:
