SUNDAY TRIVIA
 
Each week, we ask three trivia questions about one of the countries participating in our blog tour. This week, again, we focus on Amadi’s country, Nigeria. Send us your answers at katianovet@gmail.com. At the end of the month, we’ll draw a winner among the participants who gave the right responses, each week, and they’ll win a prize. 
Questions from last week, and the responses:

1. Find the name of the Nigerian Author, born in an Igbo village, like me, who wrote the novel “Things Fall Apart” (most widely read book in modern African literature.) Chinua Achebe

2. A question about climate : what is the name of the wind that blows from the desert, during the dry season? The harmattan.
3. What are Nigeria’s direct neighboring countries? Benin, Niger, Chad and Cameroon.
Thank you very much to those who sent us their responses. You can continue to write them in the comment section at the end of this post, or send them to katianovet@gmail.com.
