, pTook a trip to Ijebu-Igbo in Ogun State and tried catching anything I could on camera.

There's something about those rusty rooftops and tarred roads that gives me some kind of nostalgia...

... And the hilly landscape littered with ancient old brazillian styled houses...

Some of these ancient houses have very large rooms, you'd wonder if giants lived in them. Like this one wifey posed in front of.

This building which I snapped on the way bares a striking resemblance to Nigeria's first storey building that was built during the slave trade era.

A lumber truck makes its way across the town bearing mighty trunks due for one of the sawmills.

Somebody once said Nigerians are always jacks-of-all-trades. Well this shop with a funny name proves that person right!

This tricycle driver had just dropped us when his colleagues at the taxi park surrounded his vehicle, congratulating him on his newly acquired tricycle. Hmm...every little achievement is worth celebrating.

Two Ijebu school kids wait in anticipation for their Mum to give them lunch money while their younger siblings have fun with dirt lying around.
