Talked to Bahati on the phone yesterday.

She’s still on track to visiting Europe. Her current problem? Nigerian teachers are on strike, so she doesn’t know if she can graduate according to schedule.

But then, she says, she will become Bahati the world-traveler. And as to her future after that?

“I’ll want to make my Master’s degree where ever you are, Secretgeek, and then I will return to Nigeria. It’s my home after all.”

Aw. I am not sure whether I should be delighted that she wants to be wherever I am, or wants to leave again after some time. But maybe this is just her way of saying, “look, I am not going to force you into anything”.

And, I guess that’s a good thing, because maybe meeting her turns out to be the biggest disappointment ever.
