Followers of this blog will know that I spent significant time in Nigeria around the turn of the millennium. Today I am sharing a few pictures from my travels. The pictures are from throughout Nigeria, from Yorubaland in the Southwest, Abuja, and Yankari National Park (Bauchi State). I hope to share more later.
You can read more about my experiences in Nigeria in the first chapter of the book Failed States: Realities, Risks, and Responses. A free sample, which includes several Nigerian stories, is available here.
