Your trully is presently in Cape Town for a forum. Second time out of Nigeria. First was to Ghana and now to South Africa. Not bad, am starting to think it's possible to realise my dream of touring the world. Thanks to W.TEC for this opportunity. And thanks to my boss for believing in me. I am not here alone but with her.

Yeah, I am settling in. I already made a lot of observations. Cape Town is neat. I wish Lagos can be that neat. All the cars steerings are to the right. Almost all the vechicles in Nigeria have thiers to the left. Why the difference?

And again, it's cold, there a lot of white people.... what else? Well, about to start touring ( that will happen if I am not too busy with what I come here for). I do need to make time out to see Cape Town. Yes, I must

Stay tuned for update!

good to hear u are enjoying cape town..and am sure u'll accomplish all u went to do..

on a lighter note- the way you wrote this statement "it's cold, there a lot of white people"- is it "cold" cuz there are a lot of white people there?? or are those two statements totally unrelated?
