I got a call from a friend today, saying that the Sindy had a middle page spread on Nigeria. Alex Hannaford writes about how "exciting" it is to visit Nigeria. Of course Nigeria is exciting, in the same way visiting an asylum is exciting. You never know if someone will leap out at you from a cupboard, or if someone who is actually older than you will say you are their father. Firstly, he says Lagos is Africa's largest city, which is wrong. Cairo is. Where are the Sindy's fact checkers?
"If you can escape the crime, survive the "go slows" and the officiousness, and deal with poverty on an unimaginable scale, it's one of the most exciting, unpredictable places in the world." Well, good luck escaping all those things.
