    The gleaning red aircraft of the Queen's Flight, came to a halt, an the band played, the people cheered, and the Queen Mother stepped out to carry out the usual reception.........first a Bishop, then a couple of Europeans, then an elf African Chief, and his wife, with elephant teeth hanging round her neck, then the chiefs wife with a baby strapped on her beck, then the chief with brilliant plumed hat, and the chief with a leopard skin suit, so it went on, colourful characters in a little backwash of humanity, hundreds of miles from almost anywhere, attracting Europeans, and Africans from as far as 300 miles away, over shocking roads...but everybody looked their best, and the guest mother met them all. the nuns in their tope's the African scouts and guides, and then, after a garden party (not covered) she went to ligula Hill, miles out of a dusty road to look over the country surrounding the famous lake Eyesa.
