  • Oops, it’s WOLE Soyinka, not Sole.

    I submitted this photograph because I figured Coyne wouldn’t notice that my trusty Peace Corps steed was a Land Rover, not the polo pony I was half-owner of for a while until I was thrown off of the Ibadan Polo Club grounds: “Gentlemen don’t race their ponies on the polo field.” S’true story.

    For more about the Shakespeare story and the Land Rover, go to this Peace Corps site which contains a much-travelled piece I wrote for Coyne a long time ago, in a galaxy…
