Abuja Chronicles II | Tuke's Quest

Abuja Chronicles II

Hello Hello Hello!

I felt like the previous post was getting a tad bit too long so decided to split the Abuja Chronicles into a 3 part series. I took over 200 pictures in Abuja but I'm obviously not going to post all of them. We sorted out the NYSC registration quicker than we thought so stopped by at the Craft shop to get some souvenirs.
I love Jemma's robot earrings

We drove past some pretty cool places like

This picture reminds me of all those village scenes in Africa Magic movies
I bought the full Fulani attire, that's what I'm carrying in the Black bag
African Arts and Crafts
I can't wait to go there again
I bought a lot of stuff but I didn't take pictures of them. Here's a picture of my little brother in the Dashiki set I got him. I also got a Fulani set for him, an ankara top for my mum, a buba like dashiki for my dad and an ankara bag, some jewellery (like these red beads) and a saxophone print dashiki for myself.

That's Deji

We went to Food city for Lunch and ate at a Restaurant called Grills. The food was sooo delicious and they served Non-Alcoholic Cocktails in Huge Plastic Water Bottles that you could take away. I'll take pictures of the drink this time around.
Chicken wings, Yummy!!
Crabs, Delicious! I love Seafood!!!
