We had a wonderful Lagos Thanksgiving dinner, right on Thanksgiving Day. Thanksgiving Thursday here is a regular work day, so it's not quite like the holiday in the States. No football or parades on TV, but it was great to join with other expats and Nancy was kind to invite us to join her guests, which were mostly an ExxonMobil crowd. They had brought turkeys in from the US, which were wonderfully cooked on the grill. My contribution was a dessert and some sweet potatoes that I had purchased in Dubai (our only purchases that we took away from Dubai were from the wonderful grocery stores there), as they are not available in Lagos. The meal had all the trimmings and lots of good friends and conversation.
