|Earlier this week, we launched Routes, our geo-story project!|
Routes is mapping African stories one route at a time. This project sits at the intersection of life stories and mobility in African contexts.
Through routes, we explore how African lives are shaped by mobility, migration, journeys and mode of transport; and how places take on the stories of the people who have visited or passed through them.

|Our latest respondent is Douglas Osunde a retired public servant. Born in Benin, Edo State, he moved to Lagos in 1974 and currently lives in Surulere.|
|Do you or someone you know have an interesting mobility story? Do you have a hack for moving around your city, or know something about your city’s history that not too many people know?|
Tell your story. We’re open to submissions and looking forward to reading!
