He was originally from British West Africa, which became Biafra. After the Biafran War his country became part of Nigeria. He told an interesting tale about multinational corporations in his oil-rich country.
He's got a masters' degree in criminology and a wife who is a doctor. She's finishing her residency in Africa and their two children are living with her. He's a citizen now, as are his kids. But his wife is experiencing some difficulties with her green card, but they're confident it will be resolved in a few months.
He quit his government job as a probation officer. Enjoys driving a cab, and teaching at a local college.
He just returned from Africa after going home for his father's funeral. His father was the mayor of their (large) city. He showed a picture of the entire family standing in front of their home--a gorgeous mansion surrounded by coconut palms and banana trees.
The trip to the hotel passed by so quickly.
