Niger

Over the time I have been writing this blog, I’ve had some trackbacks which make it necessary to explain one thing:

Niger is (among other things):

  1. a country in western Africa
  2. a river in Africa, closely related to 1. or Nigeria
  3. a Latin adjective, meaning black

I have received some trackbaks due to number one, but I have to disappoint you: the meaning here goes by number three. “Papilio Niger” is Latin for “black butterfly”. So, my apology to everyone, who comes here, looking for stories about the Republic of Niger or Africa in general.
