There are so many things that you see in Nigeria that you wouldn’t see in England. Today’s treat was a funeral procession in pick-up trucks on the main road. The first truck and a bunch of what I imagine were boys’ brigade lads trying to persuade the traffic to part for them. The second truck had the coffin and the third truck had more boys’ brigade lads, but these ones were armed with trumpets and drums and were merrily playing away as they came up behind us and eventually passed us. We often laugh at the things we seen in/on cars and trucks on the road this but was a very different attitude towards burying the dead.
