After a pre - start of semester weekend on the Texas/ Mexico border with my friend Richie, I’m back in H town. Although the first week was a little structure less (no official tutor/professor to meet, no thickness of timetable to build) I feel my thesis semester has officially begun.
I spent time this summer in Lagos, Nigeria researching its market culture. The co dependence of the traders and the citys primarily motor bus based transit system is currently my focus. I suspect this might shift. A double program transit center/city market is lurking in the back of my mind but I am not entirely convinced and at this stage I'm trying to be careful of jumping to dry conclusions. There is so much exploration to be done. Input, advice, sources, links; testimonials would all be very much appreciated.
