A VISIT TO MY VILLAGE
Our village is not far from Awka, the capital of Anambra State. It is called Ibaji. There are old and new houses in our village. We are lucky. We live in a modern house. My father and my elder brothers built it three years ago. Grandpa and grandma live in the house next to us. We visit them everyday because they are old. We help them and they tell us many things about the past in return.
Our village is a peaceful place. We obey our parents and older relations. We also respect Chief Okafor, the Igwe of our village. We have a Council of elders who work with the chief. They advise the chief when there is a problem. We do not have much trouble in our village. We all obey the laws of the government and state. At school, we obey school rules and respect our teachers and headmistress.
I am sure that you will enjoy your visit. I can take you fishing if you like. We can go to the market and there are big shops in Awka. If you like you can join my age group when it is time to clean the Ilo (place for meetings and playing).
My father and mother are going to have a big party when you come with uncle, auntie and Ngozi. There will be a lot of food, dancing and games.
