Men.... From this photo i now understand the more reason why people are dying and forging documents just to get to America. Their country is so organised and beautiful. Talking about global village? This country is just a perfect example and Nigeria is way... Far from achieving that. God help Nigeria.

OP, what is the real aim of this thread, is it to promote America or to showcase America to Nigerians and the world?

Is any African country like the US, can any African country be like them? Most African countries are far younger than America who gained her independence over 200years ago, so we can't be on the same level for now. Let's know your aim. Nice photos

To share in pictures what I find interesting. Hmmm.... can't be the same level... you'd rather be in Nigeria than manyyyyy parts of America.However.... we can learn... don't have to follow them blindly.... nor go thru the trials and errors they have gone through in getting where they are today...we can learn thru their mistakes. Eg.... why are we still building overhead pedestrian bridges in heavily populated areas in Lagos... when traffic lights can be used?.... are we going to wait nxt 20 years to go that route? Does NYC have such bridges?

NYC...overhead pedestrian bridges.......always lightly used to ..... ride or walk to an island..... cross highways almost always to go to a park or a housing complex.... to cross over to another section of a school...... never for mass crossings.

Lol. You are funny. I am only stating the obvious. How many months does one take for vacation? Lets be realistic. I think he should just state that he is based in the US. I enjoy the pictures being posted.

NYC...Manhattan. Most of the other pics were taken from the FDR Drive... a highway along the east edge of the city. This view is from inside the city...Park Ave... restricted to cars only....no trucks, vans nor commercial vehicles. In the background to the right is this talllllll pencil like building. ...I'm almost sure it is taller than the World Trade Center building minus the broadcasting tower.

His aim is to post photos and enjoy his vacation, keep jumping from thread to thread seeking attention. Jobless fellow.

Originalsly, you should stop giving that pidggin2 fellow attention. You should banish her firmly from your thread just as franknetter did. He/she/it tends to be silly most times. Rebuke that foolishness strongly and it would flee from your thread.
