To anyone contemplating travelling to Africa this year, please think again. I've had another email today from a lawyer in Lagos, Nigeria, telling me that a member of my extended family has been killed in a crash out there. By my counting, that makes it over 20 this year. Although I am amazed that so many members of my extended family live in Africa, I am also deeply saddened by the news, especially when all the crashes have involved their entire families. So, if you are thinking about travelling out there, especially to Nigeria, Cote d'Ivoire or Ghana, please think again. I'd really like to get through the rest of the year without any more sad news from Africa.
