Olusegun Obasanjo at Emory University

9 Nov

My kindly host at Obasanjo Farm Otta, Easter 1985.
I am sorry I tried to chase you from the garden Sir…picking the capsicums close to dark…we had some good chopping and dancing EMAJO!
I always wonder how the Essells got on when they left the farm for Canada, Mrs Essell an Airforce  pilot?
Enjoyed my adventure to Otta ii. Palm Wine & juju where the stills once were. They brought me snakes and lizard, but I’d left for home. Yoha & Doc the dogs…and those giant pineapples growing on the dump. I wandered lost and found the cattle with the giant horns, and helped to kill to pigs in the Meat Processing so I could understand the task. I fear the snake skin slough I gathered from behind the house hedge was from a snake I’m glad I did not meet!

Beautiful Nigeria, wonderful warm people, may you flourish under that Hot sun x

What happen to my dear friend Pinto?

    The Telegram to say I was arriving arrived on the day I departed Lagos Airport for home…But I was cared for regardless, from the moment I arrived unannounced.
    Best Guinness south of Ireland, Nigeria Brewed & in my hand within the hour of landing.

    I got to ride the tarmac Lagos Airport, in a jeep, to visit Lockheed hangars, visit Badagry Beach each Sunday, and ride a huge Chick Truck down from Illorin…and dance.
