Calabar Museum

The Old Residency stands on a hill that overlooks the waterfront.
It was built in Glasgow and then shipped over in pieces.
It used to be the colonial government residency and is now
the Calabar History museum, hosting a good collection of documents
on the region, his economy, the slave trade...

I'm sorry I don't have many pics to share...
one more time I was asked not to take photos.

Discovering Watt market, in Calabar

Little catering this morning ?

Woah, feeling vegetarian today...
(must be antelope meat)

Well, not exactly ready to cook...

Some grasscutter ? can't eat this if you already saw one alive, too cute
(but I didn't when I taste them - it was good!)
This highly priced bush meat is considered as a delicacy.

Ok, today it will be macrobiotic diet !

Yam is as common in Nigeria as potato in Europe
His nigerian name is adamwanga, which means Adamo's food,
but not the Adam you think

Periwinkle (thanks to Sol) is how these small marine snails are called.
They seem to be the local most common winkles
