About this book

Award-winning travel writer Pelu Awofeso has travelled around Nigeria multiple times in the last 20 years. In this collection, his 5th travel book, he shares 25 of his most outstanding encounters from his solo journeys -- from watching traditional boxing bouts (Dambe) in Kebbi State and spending Christmas in Makurdi (Benue State) to experiencing the coronation of the Oba of Benin (Edo State) and exploring a 99-room mansion in Ibadan (Oyo State). Awofeso shows you everyday Nigeria in simple and evocative prose. This volume is the perfect companion for armchair travel; it's also the push you need to pack your own bag and hit the road -- either by yourself on with a group. Noticed an error in this book?
