Paw-paw high tide

The raining season is just breaking on FCT. The daytime temperature dropped to around 26 degrees yesterday, after the past few weeks of 40+. This is one of the fruit peaks when everything Nigeria has to offer fruitwise is at its finest - mango is in season, the pineapple is sweet, but best of all is the paw-paw (aka papaya). I still haven't sussed the guava cycle however - it seems so ephemeral. Yesterday's paw-paw was so sweet it tasted like caramel and toffee.

Meanwhile, I am finally clear of malaria. I brought back from Lagos some hardcore zap-all-falciparum-within-range agbo, consisting mainly of a reddish bark and some reedy looking gunk. It was quite possibly the most disgusting thing anyone could ever thinking of pouring down their neck. Drinking it every now and again will keep the anopheles at bay.

Meanwhile #2, adsl broadband appears to have hit Abuja, via Rosecom. Apparently its 15000 naira per month. Although this is steep and out of the range of 99% of the population, its still a lot cheaper than VSAT. I'm going to check it out today. We're celebrating International Women's Day (yesterday) a day late by watching Vagina Monologues tonight in Abuja..
