Teaser Tuesday: Green Oranges on Lion Mountain


My journey started at dawn, when thankfully it was still cool.  I had joined the poda-poda queue forming under the lone palm tree that offered the only shade.
-- Green Oranges on Lion Mountain by Emily Joy.  This is a British doctor's memoir about working for two years in Sierra Leone. It is fascinating, sad, funny, and charming.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.

Sun Singer: I had to google "poda-poda" too. It means to share a taxi.
