Day 2.

For breakfast my hotel didn't have a restaurant so I went out to a street side stall where the locals were grabbing a bite to eat.

200 naira (~$1) for spicy noodles, eggs and a hot drink.

Some kind of lottery/bingo/gambling shop on the corner. One of the guys rushed up yelling when I took the photo and demanded I delete the photo. I pushed a few random buttons on my camera to 'delete' it and seemed to calm down though.

I then met up with my driver, Ajiboye, again to see some more of Lagos. First stop, the National Museum.

Various traditional herbs, spices and soaps etc. used during child birth.

Nigeria has more than 500 ethnic groups, with varying languages and customs.

Tools used for traditional female circumsion (FGM). Nigeria has one of the highest rates of FGM and only officially banned it in 2015.

When then went out to explore more of the city. A church in the old Portugese area. Lagos means "lakes" in Portuguese, the language of the first European-settlers known to visit the area.

Some of the older colonial era buildings. After being a British colony from 1800, Nigeria achieved independence in 1960.
