Hi Molara. I followed the link you left me, and must admitt that I really admire your blog. I think that, actually, many people could learn blogging from you...As for your offer concerning the "Yourba Staff" (remember?), I would have some difficult words, which maybe you could unriddle...(Coming, nota bene, from some Soyinka's drama). Write me at my e-mail, since this isn't a good place to uriddle Yourba ;), if you decide to help me...With regards, Raphael Gadomski (gadomski@hotmail.com).

Excellent pictorial coverage of the NMA. My step cousin Olisa was there. I now wish I was too
