Now I see what you meant by going west..

Er, Port Harcourt? Didn't know it was a university town, though.


[For the record, Kasane is in Botswana; west of Zim.]

Now we're getting warmer, but not Banjul, Port Harcourt or Accra, although they each have logic.

Another bone: The most populous nation in Africa?

KeMac you are absolutely correct, it is Ibadan. The palm frond passes to you!

(Thinks: I'd better put away my more obscure photos!)
