Sep 21, 2005 - You're Going WHERE?

Let's be honest - when it comes to travel destinations, Nigeria isn't one of the first countries to spring to mind. Playing the word association game proves the point. Nigeria, let's see: oil, corruption, ethnic tensions, email scams. We're not exactly talking safaris and Kilimanjaro here. When I signed up for this project, even a few of my fellow authors raised their eyebrows and made jokes about only needing to book a one-way ticket. "Rather you than me" was a common theme.
