Thinking
back about this post it occurred to me that the aforementioned are all university towns with largish African student populations.

Sorry, that was a Monty Python reference... They slip out at odd times.

Aha! I see.

I didn't go much on MP so didn't pay much attention. It was a very poor spin off of "The Goon Show" (surreal radio programme with Spike Milligan, Harry Secombe and Peter Sellars which ran throughout the 1950s). That sort of comedy relies on the "mind's eye" and doesn't really translate well to a visual medium.

"The Goon Show" is being re-run on BBC Radio 4 Extra at 8am on Tuesdays. I listen to it sitting up in bed and try not to choke on my first cup of tea of the morning!

We can of course easily get coconuts and plantains in the UK . Coconuts are easily available in supermarkets and plantains in Asian and Caribbean type shops. I love these type of shops specifically to hunt out different ingredients and try new recipes .


MC you forgot to mention Liverpool ....
