4.12.08 'SPEEDY'S' TROPICAL GARDEN
We flew to Lagos airport where we were kindly met by Mrs Lizzie Thomas, the mother of Bumi an ex-student of mine. She had the most wonderful garden, which was so relaxing after a lot of busy places. The plants were exuberant with colour, texture and strong growth.
In amongst all this was 'Speedy' the pet tortoise who came calling evey two or three days for bread, or salad. He apparently cost 50p!
