You just mentioned Nigeria in another thread I'm sure, because that was the first thing that came to my mind when you put the picture.

Hope you didn't believe that since it was a bald-faced lie. Neither of my parents is a diplomat and I've never actually set foot in Africa :wink:

Yeah, not only that, Formiko is obsessed with Nigeria :) I thought immediately Nigeria when I saw Formiko's pic featured black people.

For some reason I sense something oriental about those pics, especially the last one.
