Abeokuta is known for its indigo dye pits and fabric design. We had a nice walk through the fabric market and fabric dying area. Lots of fabric was laying on the ground or hung on lines in various stages of the dying process. Tubs of indigo dye were all over the place and the draining furrows in the ground were stained blue.
I loved the painted illustration on this maternity home.
The market area of town was busy on this holiday. Of course, we couldn't get away without buying some fabric!
I couldn't get to my camera fast enough to get a close up of the lady in this next picture, but she has quite a load of plastic ware on top of her head, plus a baby on her back. I'm always amazed at what they can balance!
On our drive out of town, we had to stop after we passed our church's building in Abeokuta. We were kind of envious looking at this building that looked like an oasis in the bustling, ramshackle city.
We wish our church building was like this one!
On the drive home, I had to stop and buy another yam pounder. One really isn't enough!
