EuroCup 2008 in Abuja

Sitting here drinking a Guinness

Extra Smooth brewed in Lagos

Ingredients: Malt, Sorghum,

Maize and Hops, label says


Reading Brazilian Portuguese

and watching Spain v. Russia

with Abuja’s Nigerians


Spain’s up 2 nil, and

the locals are happy

drinking Gulder and

Star and Heineken and

Harp and the Irish ferment


Mosquito bit the underside

of my foot, but malarone

is in my system….


Correction, Spain is up

3 nil and a few people

have decided to go

elsewhere for the night
