Jola Naibi

Writer and amateur photog. I seek to inspire and inform with the words I write and share and the photos I take. I have written a book of short stories: Terra Cotta Beauty, and I am working on a lot more. Reading and writing fuel my energy. In reading, I explore this vast and diverse world, in writing, I employ my over-active imagination and address the 'what-if' questions that life often throws at us.

The Art Village in Abuja

By on April 26, 2010

A view of the Art Village in Abuja, Nigeria. I thought it was one of the most under-promoted places when I visited the city a couple of years ago. We just happened upon it from looking out the window of the Sheraton Hotel where we were staying. You have to cross a precariously dangerous road to get to it, but it is certainly worth the visit.

Some of the photos from the Art Village will be featured on the photoblog in a few days.
