By far, the most enjoyable part of my trip has been The Divine Daughters of Love Convent in Enugu. My Aunt Josephine (they call her Papa Jo...which is pretty funny) is a nun and we spent a day and 1/2 with her meeting her fellow sisters, visiting the nearby hospital run by the nuns, and just enjoying the quiet. That place tops my list for places to revisit! I took advantage of the quiet and recorded some video of a song I will be releasing for Christmas. If you check the media page this Wednesday (Dec 7), you'll be sure to see it! And you'll also be able to get a free download of the song! :)
One of the things I didn't expect to come across was the "Collecting" of a dead body on the afternoon of our visit to the hospital. It is custom to dress in your best clothes when you're going to collect the body of your deceased family member. I caught a bit of that in the 2nd video below. The first video gives a tour of the grounds.
I think my favorite thing about the convent was seeing how people smothered my aunt with love. She's a bit older and they really take care of her. She called everyone her daughter or her son, which was very cute :)
