THE LAND OF MY BIRTH

Population_density_map_of_Nigerian_states_-_EnglishThe sun was radiant, all-watching eye, its light creeping into every corner, bathing the whole world in a warm glow.

The mini van cruised down a twisting road, grassy, forest green hills looming over the mountainous drive. An endless expanse of turquoise wonder, shimmering a liquid gold, stretched towards the distant horizon. The grasses looked like yarn weaved carpets and the birds hoping from tree to tree chanting in  the distance. The countryside view of Velbert in Germany was breathtaking.
