Oh how fascinating, Jaye Sarasin ! It's definitely On My List, particularly after my first foray properly into West Africa in 2018 (six weeks in Ghana and Burkina Faso). Did you manage to travel around the region much when you were there?
Hi Elizabeth. Sorry I never got back to you immediately. Life intervened as they say. I did get to see a fair bit of the West African coastal countries and South Africa. Left a deep impression (malaria attacks as well!) Gorgeous people although volatile. It was all pretty primitive - pre-oil - in my day but I don't suppose the ordinary folk have profited very much from that.
