heritage1960 Views from #Kuwait | 6am run, and by run I mean leisurely stroll, with my bro @cowunwanne. Was all fun and games, until we hit mile 4...and the sun was fully up...and it was 117 degrees...and we couldn't quench our thirst in public (illegal for non-observers during Ramadan ). Then the slow stroll, became an even slower crawl, until we finally made it home, where we gladly stayed put until sun down. #ViewsFromKuwait #Sunrise #Beach #SlowStroll #AfricanWanderer #Wanderlust 2w

heritage1960 Vintage Photos | Found this photo of my Dad and his 2 flatmates from the '60's. They were living in Surulere, Lagos, at the time...above a photo studio. Whenever they had a few extra kobo, they would dress in their best finery and head downstairs for a photo session. Dad remembers them both fondly - Emeka, on the left, is an Engineer in the UK now and his buddy on the right (whose name is now forgotten and no longer in touch with, yet still fondly revered) had always been the jokester of the crew. Till today, Dad (in the middle) still has the same gentle and compassionate disposition you feel radiating from this photo. #EverydayNigerians #VintagePhotos #MemoryLane #Surulere #Lagos #Nigeria #Naija #Attire #1960s 2w

heritage1960 Wanderlust Babies | Growing up, my Mom used to travel to America every 6 months so she could keep her green card active. This summer...'86ish...while Mom was away, Dad decided to take us on vacay sans Mom for the first time. Mom allowed him under one condition -- "De, if anything happens to my children, I will kill you". Don't mess with #Igbo women...we're strong mentally AND physically , bwahaha! Armed with both fear and excitement, Dad dressed us in trad, everyday all day, while we traipsed around on #Italy to ensure he could always easily see us, especiaaly if we wandered off. Thankfully for all, Dad never missed a beat and we made it back safe and sound...alls well that ends well! @rassnigeria76 @cowunwanne #Wanderlust #Travel #StartEmYoung #StandOutInYourTrad #AtHomeAndAway #NigerianTrad #HaveAlwaysLovedANiceCrocodilePurse! 2w

heritage1960 "It doesn't matter how slow you go, as long as you don't stop." Slow journeys are the best journeys. Buckle up and enjoy the ride. Unless... you're stuck in traffic in #Naija. Then blast your horn and act as though your time is more important than that of the 1 million other commuters in your immediate vicinity. I kid, I kid. Don't do that... Be still, quiet your mind, and enjoy the #goslow.

heritage1960 Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size.
But when I tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms,
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman.
Phenomenally.

Rest In Power, Phenomenal Woman.

heritage1960 TEXTILE & DESIGN INNOVATION | Inspired by the #pattern and #color of #traditional #handwoven #textiles from #BurkinaFaso, these textiles are #handprinted on locally sourced #handspun #cotton in a workshop in #BurkinaFaso #Africa in the same region and by the same people who inspired the #design. 2mon
