The Annual Şęnrolu Day in Odoşęnlu

Visit to Bristol

My first time of visiting Bristol, England was on May 14, 2019. It was a dinner visit with my bosom friend Tayo Eboda to meet with our former Mathematics teacher at Ijebu-Ode Grammar School, Mr. Tony Finch. A multi-talented teacher who taught Mathematics, Add Maths, French as part of being a polyglot. I remember that he was comfortable in too many languages that included Polish, German etc. By the time he was leaving Ijebu-Ode in June 1970 to travel for 6 months before proceeding to Saudi Arabia, he had taught himself Arabic. Subsequently settling in Malaysia, he added Malay yo his many European languages. The last time I met younger Tony Finch with a lot of beard was in 1975 in England when I got to meet his parents, sister and friends. For Tayo, it was 1970.
