Pictures they Never show: Nigeria (West Africa)

I think am a bit home sick. I miss my good old friends, cousins, and aunts. I really miss the fun I had last December when I visited. Am looking forward to my visit this year because I get to reunite with old friends who are in Nigeria and those who are coming back from other countries. I guess, it's sort of like a reunion.
The difficult part when I remember home is that I will not get to see my grandma, who past away late February of this year. I don't know how I will handle not seeing her when I get back because the BIG reason I go visit more often was to see her--until then, I don't want to get teary eye talking about her.

Meet my nana:
This picture was taken in Jan. 08, 1-2hrs before I departed back to America--this was my last with her, Love u, RIP

Ok, off from the sad part, here are pictures of areas they never show you about Nigeria. Enjoy
