walked deep in the
remaining forest of Lekki today. in the omnipresent drizzle, in the grey mist that crowned the tall canopy of ancient trees. The National Conservatory of Nigeria was remarkable: maintained beautifully and clearly loved by the workers. 78 acres of lush wet rainy season forest, as dense and prolific as the culture surrounding and sustaining it.
giant tortoises roam freely. a glimpse into the den of a nesting mother was sheer delight for the children: her eggs glistening like pirate's booty~ her instincts forcing her underground to protect her eggs. Peahens parade for the more flamboyant peacocks. None spread the famous crest of color, but their bright turquoise necks were gorgeous to behold, in the misting rainfall.
