No.182: Sao Tome and Principe

Alex Horne - 19th October 2007
Whilst working in a school in Ghana earlier in the year, my brother Mat happened to read an article by a lady called Maimouna Jallow who had moved from London to Sao Tome and Principe. You can read the article here.
On a whim, I guessed her email address, received one back pointing me to her actual address, and sent her a message pleading for help.
Within hours she'd put me in touch with her friend Conceicao. Within days I'd spent a fascinating and hugely enjoyable hour and a half with this former BBC World journalist, renowned poet and truly inspiring woman.
