On Sunday we drive to the new Ado Bayero mall in Kano's city centre. I'm here for a month doing agricultural research, and there's very little in the way of Western entertainment, except for a handful of restaurants, a zoo and a mall. The mall is still half empty, with four clothes shops dotted along its vast corridors and two giant food and electronics stores at either end. We catch the tail end of a Manchester United game in one of the shops where it's showing on 30 different sized screens and an enraptured crowd is watching.
