Photos from the Alaafin's Palace in Oyo.

I found myself at the Alaafin's Palace and took some photos. The traditional religions and cultures here are strong in that they are still respected, but they are also challenged by Christianity, Islam and other political and religious power bases. It's interesting to watch the people dance between the various conflicting cultural ways of living. Personally I find the stories and myths of the Yoruba fascinating and they remind me of the Greek myths I used to read and love when I was young.
