from the "Life Along Nigerian Rivers" series
Where my parents live in Niger State, Nigeria (about an hour out of the town of Kontagora), you have to cross a river in order to get to their house among the Avadi people. In the rainy season you have to take a canoe across, because the water depth can fluctuate between 5ft and 20ft depending on the rains. Makes life interesting!
