Sterling Towers


Sterling Bank's HQ. One of the many high rises that belong to the mega banks on the Lagos Island. Many of them have seen their share prices plummet on the stock exchange in recent times a result of the global economic crises.

Many people are out of jobs now and many more are afraid what tomorrow will bring. Sometimes you wonder if globalisation isn't a curse after all.

Oh dear. I hope things begin to look up for you there. The Philippines, amazingly, is weathering the financial crisis quite well. I guess it's because not very many people here can afford to invest in stocks and bonds, and therefore didn't lose anything. I just pray that it holds.
