Owen Powell - 1st September 2007
I am embarrassed to say that I don't know much of Saga's story. We exchanged a few emails while Alex and I were in Edinburgh (which explains the four week gap between Moldova and Liberia), culminating in an invite from Saga to her daughter's 30th birthday party in a wine bar in Dalston.
I spend the whole day moving house, and so arrive late at the party, when it's in full swing. Saga greets me effusively, I give Doy a box of chocolates, and we all have a very brief chat with very loud backing music. I discover Saga has relatives from Sierra Leone and Antigua and Barbuda, but as hostess she is needed in ten places at once so I spend a lot of time sampling the fantastic food.
