Supermarkets: is plenty enough?On a Saturday afternoon I accompanied a friend for shopping in Lekki. We went to a large shopping mall called Spar, which is nested among residential housings. It has a large parking lot and a few palm trees giving it an air of Florida.
Inside, what really caught my attention was the repetition of patterns as if to show that the shop has plenty of things in great quantity. Perhaps a way of claiming that it is ready to serve the swelling nigerian middle class living in Lekki.
Here is a serie which I believe might make you feel satiated once you will have gone through it!

LekkiA few years back, Lekki was an area populated by shanty towns. Land was bought rather cheap by investors that in turn redeveloped the area in high-end residential areas in phases. There was the phase I and then the phase II. The Lekki-Epe expressway is helping people working in Victoria Island and leaving on the Lekki peninsula to reach their home fairly rapidly depending on the thickness of the traffic.
It looks like a motorway crossing a huge industrial area with roundabouts branching into the heart of the residential areas. Streets there are not always paved but the sandy ground makes it easy when the weather is dry. Housing can range from compounds with a much as 10 or 20 floors to pretentious stucco-adorned column-clad neoclassical mansions with, of course, tainted windows and Air-Conditionner on the balconies. Yards are essentially devoted to car parking, trees are fairly rare and green is rather absent. However the area will certainly improve over the years as more and more affluent people settle there and older developments are redeveloped into newer and fancier ones.
Many gyms, bars and restaurant are opening up making it a suburb where people feel comfortable living in, not too far from their car. Famous pub is the Sailor's Lounge which is located on the side of the lagoon near Admiralty way and has a first floor balcony and a floating terrace to eat and have drinks
