A movie evening!
As part of the wireless training we had a movie evening!. Food, drinks and of course a generator... the movie was Blood Diamonds. I will not tell you anything about the movie; you should go and watch it! There are many things in the movie that are common to Nigeria. Countries that have plenty of natural resources but do not benefit to their people. It feels insane that a country that exports more oil than Norway or South Arabia has not provided a stable power grid to their citizens. National Geographic this week talks about the Nigerian oil... another interesting reading.
It is not an easy feeling to live in the rural Nigeria knowing that not far from here, it is the oil that pumps our western economy! Need to rush and finish this posting before the next power cut.
