The moment one gives close attention to anything, even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself.

Hello, so I finally put up some pictures of Abuja, Nigeria. FINALLY!!!!!!
As I have posted before, I lived in Nigeria from December 2009 to October 2010. Actually during my lifetime, I have lived in Zambia for plus 6 years, Namibia for 15 years, Austria for 7 and a half years and Nigeria for about 10 months and now I have been in Sweden for thus far 5 months, I am planning another move(s) soon (that's on the hush hush for now). Basically, I like moving around.
Coming from Southern Africa, I had never been to West Africa before (but I had been to Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana - I haven't been to South Africa yet even though it borders Namibia!!!!!!) and my only interaction with Nigerians in Namibia was a guy in my high school. And of course what you hear and read about Nigeria and Nigerians. My experiences in Nigeria were both negative and positive, but overall I enjoyed my time there. I enjoyed the people that I met, the food that was wonderful to eat, the amazing weather, the culture, the languages, the music and the movies!!!!! I love Nigerian films, even still now, I watch them on Youtube.
Anyways, onto the pictures.
These next few pictures were of an exhibition of Traditional Nigerian Tribal attire. I couldn't tell you which tribe wears what. Or from what region something comes from. Sorry......but hey if you know, you can let me know.
The next pictures were taken at a Cultural evening. There were many traditional dances, singers and story tellers. Again, I am very bad with the information. I just take photo's.
