My sister went to visit a tailor at Kargi International Market. We trailed along — camera as well.
1. Street happenings on the way to the tailors at Garki International Market.
2. A quick scan of some Garki Market stalls…
3. A quick scan of the market stalls…
4. Former plastic water bottles are repurposed and used to sell juices and other drinks, such as this mysterious milk-coloured liquid.
5. A sewing machine repair man and his very inquisitive son.
6. I do love the geometry of this place.
7. I do love the geometry of this place.
8. A lady irons sections of a garment at one of the many tailor’s units.
9. Sometimes the kids are the only ones with enough time to be curious. I suppose they’re still busy exploring the world around them: work can come later.
10. That geometry again…
11. The fine art of removing a coconut shell: like a seriously alternative way to peel an egg.
12. All I can say is: this has something to do with keeping kids busy.
13. Two taxi-hunting ladies.
14. A view of the back of some of the Garki Market buildings.
15. This one needs no introduction.
16. Our business done, for now, so time to leave Garki Market.
17. Next stop: The Dunes Center shopping mall, but first we need to hail a cab.
18. Comfortably seated in the back of the taxi, we allowed ourselves to be impressed by those distant rocks.
19. A bit more street scenery… Nothing spectacular: just one of those places you look at without quite knowing why.
20. Apparently this is/was someone’s house. It’s also haunted — so they say. Either that, or the sheer size simply spooks anyone who tries to live in it.
21. The abandoned monolith on the right caught my eye. I’ll try and discover a bit more about its history.
22. Gazing out from a Dunes Center window at an upmarket section of town.
23. From the same position, though now looking left.
24. Art for sale.
25. One phrase that comes to mind is: ’Totally Blingaliscious’
26. Back in a taxi and heading home; those crosses…
27. Newspapers still do pretty well in Nigeria.
28. Got wheels, will travel.
29. This may look a bit chaotic, but there’s a definite plan and logical reason for everything being the way it is.
30. A breeze block production site.
Corner stores do come in all shapes and sizes…
