Osun Trip 2013 - Day 1
A bunch of us visiting Osogbo in Osun State, SW Nigeria, sightseeing. These are my tweets from Day 1. We visited the Osun Sacred Grove. I visited the Festival in 2009. My photo documentary from there: http://toluogunlesi.wordpress.com/2009/08/17/2009-osun-osogbo-festival-photos-by-tolu-ogunlesi/
