View Welcome to Lagos. Ep 3.1 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B_HGHj5kTM4&feature=share&list=PLEEAB6EEE6C8A4393). Also, revisit the video from Week One,Robert Neuwirth: The hidden world of shadow cities, (http://www.ted.com/talks/robert_neuwirth_on_our_shadow_cities.html).
Robert Neuwirth argues that “squatter cities are the cities of tomorrow.” After completing this week’s assigned readings and watching Welcome to Lagos. Ep 3.1, do you agree with Neuwirth’s perspective? What issues do the Nigerians in the video face that are similar to those in the cities that you’re more familiar with? What issues are different? How do the citizens of the city solve these problems?
Additionally, reflect on how your perception of what you believe to be a city has changed since your Week One Introduction.
