Welcome, dear reader. This is my new web experiment. The experiment ends with the month of January, at which time I'll be going back into the woodwork where I came from.
But while it is around, I hope this blog proves to be a place for good stories, both in the main columns and in the comments boxes. Mostly, you can expect words and images related to a journey I made to Nigeria in December 2005, though from time to time I may stray from that brief. Blogging is public, but there's also an intensely private aspect to what I'm doing here, namely, working on my writing and photography. There can be a meaningful intersection between that private work and this public sphere. That's what I hope for in this brief sojourn in Blogistan. Thank you for reading and looking.
Teju Cole. A voice I've been missing.
