Eko

You may call it Lasgidi, Eko ile or Lagos. You may hate the traffic and love the energy. It may be your dream destination or worst nightmare. I don't think one can be ambivalent about Lagos. The city demands a response every time I visit it. It is too vibrant for me to be uncertain about how I feel towards it.
Nobel Laurete Wole Soyinka shares his thoughts about the city in Newsweek. He is at once nostalgic and hopeful. You can read the piece here
I got the picture from his Nobel prize page.
