    Absolutely a “time warp” into another world! You sound like you are doing a fabulous job of working through the fall-out from that. If it weren’t so frustrating for you, it could actually be seen as comical about the delays of your ID card, and then the bank needing your ID card which you still had not yet received! Sort of like a Seinfeld episode, right? Good thing you are keeping your sense of humor!

    The joy you received in listening to the wedding music was quite touching and wonderful!

    Thanks for sharing, and watch out for those geckos…OR maybe the geckos should watch out for you!:)

    Hi Kevin,
    nice reading your updates. In Yoruba, wall geckos are called ‘omo-n’ile’. As you might know already, that means ‘child in the house’ and are left to live untouched in the house. You can verify this from your Yoruba parents as that’s what I have been taught by mine.

    hmmmm,very intriguing writeup. Typical Nigerian way of life. I must confess I hate the sentiments about God that people bring into everything here, even when they need to improve their productivity to make things work they’re still beclouded by what they call God’s grace without taking any step to making things work. Imagine someone relying on God’s grace for days when it could be done by his/her grace! That is Nigerian mentality for you.
