Nigeria's Brasilia

15% of Africans live crowded into Nigeria's 3% of Africa's land. To my surprise, since 1991, Nigeria's capital is no longer the overcrowded, hellish Lagos with its 8 million souls, but the much smaller, less crowded and livable Abuja, in the country's dead center.. Below left is a panoramic view, and right, the ship-shaped Defense Ministry (aka the Ship House)..

Abuja's highlights include Nigeria's National Mosque...

...and its National Church
