I came upon this site recently. I love the pictures because I was able to see Lagos through the eyes of a stranger. I mean the picture of a street with the no park sign right in an obviously non-parking zone was one I have passed a lot of times and never noticed.
Most of the photos were taken in Victoria Island, which is fast becoming more and more of a business area and less of a residential one.
I haven't fashied my blog o! I have been on leave and my connection at home is questionable at best. Since I don't do cyber-cafes...too many people minding your business with you... I have decided to wait until I get back to work next week. See you then!!
Surely you have heard the one about the unemployed Nigerian graduate who goes out one day in search of a job. He’s listening to his Japanese made radio and checking out the time on his Swiss made watch and hops into his German made car. This is only after he had donned his TM Lewin Jand sewn shirt and his Italian leather shoes.
He roams the streets of Lagos, gets nothing and is frustrated at the economic state of Nigeria!
My sister bought this book,Capitalist Nigger, recently, and she has been raving about it. Thought you might like to have a look. It’s supposed to be a really great book for those that are interested in ushering in a new economic dawn. Those who need to have a financial epiphany or like me are really just not as into Nigerian stuff as we should be can also apply. Lastly, since there has been some talk about finances in so many blogs here and here, I thought I should chip in my own bit.
I wish I could tell you more about it, but I can’t as I am busy reading for my exams. However, just a few pages in, I was ready to declare that I am a Nigger.
P.S: If you did not understand the story above, then you definitely need this book. You can listen to the author’s radio interview here. Alternatively, you can just read the transcript of the interview.
