On Olumo Rock 3

This is the Obaluaye shrine where every traditional ruler of Abeokuta, the Alake, is initiated into kingship. It is a very sacred place among the Egbas and only the chief priest andinitiates can enter into that room.

First, my apologies for a bit of cut and paste commenting. I have been doing the rounds via Bloglines and looking at all the pictures from my favourite photo blogs, but haven’t been leaving comments. Generally, I try to comment as much as I can (I know how good it is for ‘morale’ to know that someone is out there appreciating them), but after the birth of my second son, I am a bit knackered to think up something witty and insightful on the hop. Thus the resort to Control+C and Control+P!
