Lagos, March 2009

Took a trip to Lagos last month. Had heard some horrid things, but I absolutely LOVED it and had a great time.

Lagos Island from Victoria Island:

Cant believe the difference between European and America cities compared to this. Makes you really feel lucky to live where you do, even if you live in the shittest area, it's still better than some other places.

Nice photos btw.

What's the matter with you Tony Resta? I'd take Lagos over your dirty Europe any day.

Would you happen to have some showing what is the average street in Lagos like? (ie not central areas)

What's wrong with it? It doesn't look that bad at all and in fact, there are parts of US & European cities that look a lot worse than that!

If the place doesn't appeal to you, fine, but at least have some respect.

Great pics, BTW.

That's pretty much what I expected to see from Lagos.

Hope some of the older highrises will get a new facade in the future.

An unusual angle. Fascinating. Talks about trade...and humid hot weather.

Thanks for posting
