This is the blog of writer and journalist Andrew Walker.
The title comes from Northern Nigeria, where all folk tales begin: "A story a story, let it go, let it come" and end with the saying "off with the rat's head."

One intriguing artifact...
Here's an interesting thing at the Musee Africain in Tervuren, a carving depicting what appears to be a woman leading another woman home in chains, then the captive woman seems to be giving the captor... err oral pleasure, while the woman's husband seems to be, err pleasing himself. But again no context or explanation as to what this might be from the museum.
