Happy Independence Day Nigeria


Nigeria has been free from colonial rule for 57 years today.  Happy birthday Nigeria!

I must say, it is nice having a fairly good quality digital camera in my pocket everywhere I go.  What did we do before smartphones?  Some beauty from this morning’s run.

Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge – N300 toll to cross it in a car, free on foot, with nice sidewalks, and it is well lit at night.  Quite a few people apparently do a big chunk of their running back and forth on this bridge.


Decorated pillars under Falomo Bridge.  These 2 bridges are the only hills around, all the rest of my running is flat as a pancake.  Murals and other decorations of the urban landscape like this are fairly common here, and its always nice to encounter a splash of color.
