not much to report ... we had a quiet weekend at home, lots of drinks by the pool (of course!) ... the rainy season has arrived, with cloudy skies, strong winds, and torrential downpours most days. it's a refreshing change from the unrelenting sunshine of the past, oh, eight months. ... last friday i went to the local "fetish" market, where animal parts used for magic/juju are sold. i plan on writing more about it sometime, but for now suffice it to say that i'm glad we don't let our cats go outside! ... i'm planning to go to nigeria to do a couple stories later this summer (is it summer yet? it's hard to tell here) but, to get a visa, i need a "letter of invitation" from somebody who's already there. preferably somebody trustworthy. if you know such a person, please e-mail me!
