Missed Nelson Mandela's 89th birthday by just a hair. Came down on Friday to attend the CNN Multichoice Africa Journalist Awards in Capetown on the 21st. I 'll be back in Africa... I mean Lagos with tidbits from my trip on Wednesday and I swear I have pictures. It's my first trip to South Africa and out of Nigeria in 7 months. Thank You Jesus!! Hallelujah!! I was beginning to go crazy in Nigeria. Plus it is winter here and that is helping to condition my voice back to normal. So now when I come back I can be all happy go lucky and relaxed for like one week before I begin to look crazy again.
Anyways I am off to see if I can find some 'lousy t-shirts' for my family members. You know the ones that say 'My -- went to SA-- and all she could by was this lousy tshirt'. May be I'll run into cooler stuff and a cute bloke on the SA Swim or Rugby team. Ya'll sistuhs know they are HOT!!
