The following takes place between July 19th and August 23rd. For national peace, local stability and my personal peace of mind, I usually do not tell T when we’re going visiting or on holidays or if we’re expecting family who are staying for more than a week.

Her mum (my younger sister) was in town for a week-long training and three – year – old Ebru aka Don Droopy (Chairman‘s Oga-at-the-top) accompanied her on the trip.

For some reason, she was ‘besties’ with Tolu – ani (She divides the name into two when she calls it) but reported every action (good and not-so-good) of Chairman’s while refusing to play with him. Both of which I found rather entertaining to observe. In the midst of her cousins, she was like a fish out of water; most of the time watching them play and scream instead”more
