We were in Nigeria for three weeks and two days and boy do I have a lot to tell you. It was Tot’s first time and my first time in six years, so it was really special. I enjoyed seeing the world through Tot’s eyes, his delight and lizards and geckos the dusty, dusty roads in Awka (Willie was working!). The rest of Anambra’s roads were like glass so I am inclined to believe the slogan.
Here are some highlights from our trip. Will update the blog with more stories and photos soon. As soon as I get my speech for SOAS’ Igbo Conference out of the way. (Oy. I am trembling. I have 40 minutes to speak. FORTY MINUTES!! Why me, lord?)

I so envy you. I haven’t been in 5 years. I can’t believe they turned Polo Park into a shopping mall. Such a waste. I don’t even want to imagine what Enugu has become since I last saw it.
Na waar.ooo! You aint seen nothing yet till you get yo the villages.
lmao! i really like this update! MOREEE please!! Its always great to read about Nigeria from returnees and visitors! Nno nu
Nno, that means welcome right?
It does indeed. But since I’m back in London now, most people would say ‘Ka o di’ – till next time.
Thanks a lot Chikodili for these wonderful pics.When I was younger at Osha, we had one veryvery well known photographer called Barbeach Photosfrom Nimo. He died a long time ago.People came from outside Osha to have their pics taken.Our family pic was taken by him and it is still good.Finally, I wish to declare that you are a better ‘photographer’ than Barbeach Photos.
glad you enjoyed visit to Anambra
