Dan Agbese from Nigeria was the elder statesman of
our group. We took to calling him Uncle Dan.
Sitting down for lunch in a Thai restaurant which
served excellent Tom Kha Gai. Thai food is a constant. Chinese food
varies from country to country. If you don't believe me, try finding

Self portrait although what I was really hoping to

Yoon Hee Sang is a

waters to be harpooned,
but these guys seemed entirely devoid of a sense of humour.
Sigh... So I hung around outside waiting for Joscka Fischer to finish
