  • Ilorin, lively streets - Nigeria

Favorite thing: From Abeokuta we drove to Ilorin, a town about 285 KM north-east of Lagos. Ilorin is a gateway city between the north and south of Nigeria, economically and culturally.

Allthough it is situated in Yoruba-land, Ilorin has also a strong Muslim influence.

We arrived in the town at dusk. At that moment the streets were very lively. A lot of people were around in the marketstreets and around the streetstalls we passed.

Fondest memory: The enthusiastic people along the road in Ilorin.
