(in no particular order)

* Big, fresh, juicy mangos for 30p each.

* Simple, cheap, fun public transport, in the form of the zemidjan.

* Being able to speak Fon and other interesting languages every day.

* Sunshine (what’s that look like again?!) and warm weather in general.

* Having a tough 4×4 and driving it anywhere.

* Friends like Brian Mitton, Matt Price, Bill, Reggy & Mathieu Assogba.

* Being warmly greeted by strangers as you walk down the street.

* Cheap fuel – diesel was 55p a litre there!!

* Bab’s Dock – a wonderfully relaxing resort on the lagoon.

* Bissap juice. Mmmmmmm!

Not curries?

Cheap curries maybe, but England must be the curry capital of Europe if not the world (with the possible exception of India itself!!)
