Visit to Nigeria (1)

posted 29 Aug 2011, 01:03 by Robert McLaren
A nerve-racking few days has just come to an end and I can breathe again. The organisers of my daughter, Naima bint Robert's promotional visit to Nigeria want her and I in Abuja, Nigeria, on 21st - no later. But the Nigerian Embassy in Harare only does its interviews on Wednesdays, in this case 20th July, and they open at 10am. They do not allow expedited interviews and so getting from Harare to Abuja was proving to be a nightmare and a very expensive one at that. Just found a Kenya Airways flight via Nairobi to Lagos for 21st. The organisers in Nigeria will facilitate my domestic transfer to Abuja. Some embassies are more accommodating than others.
