Short Video Tour of Lekki Beach Market

This is a short video of our aborted Lekki Beach Market tour this morning. Observe two things: how close the Mercedes Benz came to our car at the roundabout and the Chicken Republic outlet.


Traffic rules in Nigeria – non-existent most of the time. It’s first come first serve basis and the larger car gets the upper hand. Everyone pushes their way through traffic. Since traffic is heavy most of the time, vehicles move slowly, too close for my comfort but everyone gets to their destination one way or another.


The short rainy season is over now. From mid-October to March is the long, dry season. This is what we usually see on TV – dry season, water becomes a valuable but scarce resource.
