Night life at Iyana Ipaja, Lagos

Welcome to the city that never sleeps. No wonder they say the life of the Lagosian is on the road!

This is Ọjà Alẹ́ (Night Market) and it is 10pm at Iyana Ipaja Bus Stop in Lagos State. I am here for fresh Ofio (tigernuts) and dates from Mallam Musa.

Iyana Ipaja in Yorùbá language means ‘the junction to Ipaja road’. Iyana Ipaja is a settlement community and also doubles as one of the busiest commercial hubs on Lagos mainland.

Bungee Jumping in Soweto

Soweto Towers bungee jumping has been on our list of things to do in Soweto for a while now. Unfortunately, we have not taken the plunge yet. The best we came to bungee jumping was to watch other people do it, as demonstrated by the video on this post. This bungee jumping video was taken at the Soweto Towers on a sunny Sunday in the winter of 2018.
