Hi Ademola,

 

It's nice to hear from someone from home.  Guess we'll be in contact.  Hope things have quieted down somewhat in Lagos and I wish you a nice weekend too.

Hi Thanks for adding me as a friend :)

The pleasure is all mine, Pritha.  But I was wondering--can you review "Bishop Street" for me.  Don't seem to be getting much review on my poems these days.  Must be doing something wrong.  Thanks.
