Makoko - Lagos, Nigeria

As has often been the case, experience on the ground didn’t quite fit the tips received before I left.

Of course, watching one’s back is never a bad idea, but the reality of negotiating Lagos seemed to be that every single act was one of faith … From zooming around in a taxi with a door that wouldn’t shut to floating through the shantytown canals of the lagoon village of Makoko, to get anywhere or do anything required placing my life in another’s hands.
