The Sights of the City

Some of the sights we see driving in Lagos consist of streets filled with potholes, the poor condition of the apartments that many unfortunately must live in,  the murky water of the Lagoon that runs between Victoria Island and Ikoyi, and occasionally the oil rigs that line the harbor. Lagos is a city with millions of people. Everyday the streets are lined with people, some trying to catch a bus, others selling their goods. Though not shown here, many of those vending on the streets carry their goods on their head. We have seen people selling nuts, loaves of bread, small pastries, and even homemade medicines and herbs, and all of them walk around with their goods on their head, selling to passersby.
