Anthony Bourdain visits Lagos, Nigeria


Anthony Bourdain visited Lagos, Nigeria on Parts Unknown Sunday night, Oct. 15 (link )

The rich people live on Victoria Island, but the poor people live on canals in shantytowns.
Yet the people turn to entrpreneurlialism in  city with poor government services.  People scrape with little businesses, like cell phone repair.  They are good with their hands.  They are not afraid of high pressure selling.
  
Nigeria, however, is known for its anti-gay laws.  Why is this the case in a relatively “libertarian” economy?  Bourdain didn't go near this question.
