Sokari Ekine, who blogs at Black Looks, has an interesting essay about Lagos up at the New Internationalist Blog. Sokari reviews a recent television program which focused on the resourcefulness of the poor in Lagos.
In spite of all the current interest, I know that Lagos remains a dangerous place to visit for foreigners traveling from overseas. In fact, I was just speaking with a colleague on the Chemistry faculty here at VSU. He regularly flies in and out of Lagos to visit family. I was telling him that if I traveled to Nigeria I would probably go by way of Abuja. Perhaps the security will improve soon, or perhaps I will make some friends and acquaintances who can meet me when I arrive.
