Love this! We drive a lot with the whole family in the car, mostly visiting the elders of the family. Note that “whole family” means us parents, twins age 6, a toddler, and an infant these days. The bathroom rules get quite convoluted. They include a “we will just let you pee in your car seat if the baby is asleep and you didn’t go before we left, and you will help with the laundry afterwards” clause. Yes, I know this makes us heartless, but NO ONE stops the car while the baby (or toddler) is sleeping unless we’ve arrived at our destination!
The Igbo have number of wind and stringed musical instruments. The ugene is a whistle made of baked clay, round in form, and about the size of a billiard ball. Probably the most interesting of the Igbo instruments is the ubaw-akwala, a sort of guitar. It has a triangular body formed by three pieces of soft wood sewn together. It is played by strolling singers in the evenings. Igbo singers improvise as the song proceeds and show great skill in fitting words to the song's rhythm and tune.
