I am recently returned from a week in Nigeria and make the following observations:
-Sales of meat on a stick by street vendors remain brisk.
-The introduction of the 1,000 Naira note means it is now possible to carry enough money for a decent meal without having to also involve a suitcase.
-Bacon of quite high quality can now be had at all but the most desperate of hotels. This is a considerable improvement over a few years ago when the only reliable source of bacon in the entire country was the Sharaton Hotel in Lagos.
-It is still advisable to carry firearms if embarking upon an evening stroll in the country-side.
-The number of small motorcyles in various states of disrepair per capita is now 6.
-Both ivory and leopard skins are easilly purchased in the gift shop at Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.
