      Benjamin, Thank you for posting your slideshow online. They're great photos. I lived in Nigeria when I was 7 and will be giving a presentation to my son's class at school (in North Carolina). I'm going to show them a few highlights from your photos to give them a sense of what Nigeria is like.

      One thing I found especially different about the churches in Nigeria, is their ritual of tithing. Its a big deal. Everyone files one by one to the front of the church to slip their envelopes into the front basket, dancing and singing their way to the front, and back to their seat. Sometimes they repeat this procedure several times. It's very interesting.
