Lagos is not for the faint-hearted. Nigeria itself is not for the faint-hearted. If you are the type that's not comfortable to come out of your comfort zone, then this place is not for you! What's more going to the ever popular Lekki Market. Yes, today I am going to talk a little bit about one of the famous market here, ladies and gentlemen.
If you want to have a taste of the real Lagos, then you might want to start here, at Lekki Market first. It is not a far ride from where I live at but nowadays it is a pain to get over there eversince the toll started.

Ok, so we are set to shop. Time to put our bargaining skills and caps on! Usually, the traders will roughly offer us a third of the asking price. We, the buyer, will try to reduce theprice. This will continue till he or she shakes their head. The trick then is to walk away. Then, if you are called back, try your luck to lower the price again. Somehow, the last-mentioned price is what will be accepted. I know, this sounds like a hassle but believe me, this is the way to do it!
|It was a hot, HOT day|
|Hello little one :) Cute Nigerian boy|
|This is the area where you get your daily supplies of fresh fruits, vegetables and some dry goods. Didn't I tell you they have almost everything here in the market?|
|Yes, even two Chinese grocery shops here can be found. I get my tofu supplies here :)|
Armpits sweaty, make-up all melted, goodies in our hands, we came out of the market tired but smiling! It was a good, hot day at the market!! Dang it was hot! Till next time...
