Maxi on Track

My trip to my home country Nigeria in earlier this year was incredible! Typically, my time in Lagos, Nigeria is spent attending parties, weddings, and meeting up with friends. This time, I wanted to experience Lagos! I wanted to soak in the vibe and truly enjoy the beauty of the city that bred me. So, before I left the US, I made a list of places I wanted to visit, and Jaekel House Museum at the Nigerian Railway Compound topped my list. The reason this tourist site rated high on my list is personal. My mom grew up on this compound and my grandfather (I never met him) worked for the Railway Corporation.

Unfortunately, the Jaekel House museum which showcases the history and artifacts of the Nigerian Railway Corporation was closed for the holidays. This was a a tad disappointing, as I was looking forward to soaking myself in the 112 year history of the railway system. However, the railway compound offered an amazing backdrop for picture taking. As you can see below, the scenery was dope and my blue taffeta maxi skirt and white tshirt fit right in with the beautifully rugged ambiance.

Saw this pile of old tires and thought they'd make great props for a photoshoot

What do you guys think of the Nigerian Railway Compound? Dope, right? Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

Have a great week chicas.
