1. Left Dakar at 00.50am, into Lisbon on time but an eight hour delay at Lisbon – but you know me! That gave me hours of uninterrupted reading time! Nearly finished ‘Half of a Yellow Sun’ by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie – an unforgettable and beautifully written story.
2. Lucy went through immigration ahead of us and by the time we were through, she had all the cases loaded onto a trolley. Brilliant.
3. We were so late back that the Grandbabies were both in bed but Mr Rice made us his signature Spaghetti Carbonara for supper, delicious!

Indeed, it’s harrowing in its detail about the war and the starvation in Biafra but the characters are so well drawn that you become totally absorbed and I learned so much. I can certainly recommend it – and her other novel, ‘Purple Hibiscus’ 🙂
