Nigeria - Geography
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Nigeria is not a very big country. But the population of Nigeria is huge! It is very crowded there. Nigeria is just a small part of western Africa. Nigeria is about two times as big as the state of California. But more than a half of all the people in western Africa live in Nigeria. Imagine how crowded it is!
 
2     Lagos is the largest city in Nigeria. It is also the largest city in Africa. The name "Lagos" came from the Portuguese word for "lagoon." What is a lagoon? It is a body of water close to a beach. Lagoons are calm and shallow. Sometimes they are surrounded by lots of plants. But the word "lagoon" doesn't really describe the city of Lagos.
 
3     Yes, Lagos is on the beach, but it is not very calm. It is a very busy and exciting place. It can also be very dangerous, like many big cities. There is a lot to do in Lagos. It is a great place to hear very fun and interesting music. There are many old buildings there. Freed slaves built some of them. The capital city of Nigeria is Abuja. It replaced Lagos as the capital in 1991.
