Do you remember Tales by Moonlight? Did you ever reminisce about all those folk tales that our parents and elders used to tell us, as we grew up?
Years ago, when I got an email invitation to speak all the way in Nairobi, I read it, closed it, opened it three days in a row to read and close again. Many would not believe it, but I have some degree of stagefright - put me in a room of people, and I can summon the courage to mingle, but put me under a spotlight, on a stage, a podium or raised dias to speak to a crowd, and I got cold feet and tongue-tied.
So, I'm sitting at a grand dining table, feeding MJ from a plate of rice, pea stew and something called 'posho'. It was our second day in Kampala, Uganda, and the meal looked similar to what we enjoy in Nigeria - except the rice was a bit mashy, the 'posho' can be [mildly] compared to our local swallow food in Nigeria, and the pea stew is simply boiled green peas, with a mild 'maggi-ish' flavour.
