It was my first experience officiating at a Nigerian wedding. The bride-to-be was the daughter of a Nigerian Anglican priest who was a part of CANA (Convocation of Anglicans in North America) and he had asked me to preside.

She continued her journey eastward and eventually found herself in what appeared to be an isolated hippie commune on the west coast of India.
