Isolo is an area of Lagos situated on the mainland near the airport. It has a huge market on Tuesdays and hosts also a lot of craftsmen. Next to an unappealing waterway, some sort of natural canal turned sewer, there is a memorial for victims of a bomb blast that took place a few years back and which caused a few tenth of fleeing residents attempting to cross the water to drown in it.

After obtaining a hard-won introduction from one of the local residents which necessitated a good deal of shouting in Yoruba before finally agreeing on the fee for protection, we set about to visit the cattle area.
We had actually come to visit a scrap yard which had moved just a few days before, so once there we opted for the cattle instead.
