it has been a looong time, but nothing spoils - I am back !!
As a start I want to share my favourite music videos with you...not in the correct order of course.. ;-)
At the moment I really, really love zouk music - especially from Kaysha!
Greatest zouk musician - right after Princesse Lover and maybe Alan Cave...
J'aime le zouk - et vous?
All there is left to say - enjoy!

I thought this would be of interest to you:
Former German worldchampion defender (1974) and coach of the Mannschaft of Germany (1990-1998) berti VOGTS has just agrees to coach the Super Eagles of Nigeria until the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. "My task is to lead Nigeria to the 2008 Africa Nations Cup and to the 2010 World Cup finals", said the 60-year-old coach who replaces Nigerian Austin EGAOVOEN who has been sounded out to become his assistant. VOGTS first serious challenge will be to defeat Uganda in march for Nigeria next qualifying match for the 2008 African Cup of Nations in Ghana.The decision to recruit VOGTS has been controversial in Nigeria, since Frenchman Philippe TROUSSIER, a former coach of the the Green Eagles was also candidate for the job. There were some critics in Nigerian footbzll circles insisting on VOGTS's lack of experience of African football and his poor results as coach of Scotland between 2002 and 2004. This controversy led the boss of the Nigerian Football Association (NFA)to explain he preferred VOGTS to TROUSSIER. Sani LULU told BBC Sports that despite keen interest for TROUSSIER, he has taken in account the fact that VOGTS "has a very strong track record; he won the Worldcup with Germany as assistant coach to Franz BECKENBAUER. VOGTS also won the European Cup with Germany in 1966 and such a landmark puts him above others", said LULU.

today I would like to share one of my favourite recipes with you: Jollof Rice!!
First of all the ingredients (for 6-8 people):
- 4 cups (or one litre) white rice
- 2 fresh tomatoes OR 1/4 litre canned tomatoes and 90ml tomato paste
- 1 bell pepper (remove seeds if you don't like it too hot)
- dry pepper (cayenne pepper if you don't have african pepper at hand)
- about 4 Maggi Cubes OR 1/4 litre meat broth (that is the water you used to boil the meat)
So now we are ready, let's cook:
1. Unless the rice is clean you will like to rinse it before cooking it.
2. Put the rice and about 6 cups (or about 1½ liters) of water into a pot and place on high heat. (Some people prefer to boil the water and add the rice to boiling water. This is fine too.)
3. If you are using fresh ingredients (the tomatoes and pepper) blend them until they are smooth in texture (you can also grind the onion with this mixture).
4. Let the rice cook 10-15 minutes.
5. Add either the tomato/pepper mixture or the tomato sauce and tomato paste. If you have not added the onion, you can slice or dice it now and add to the pot, depending on how large you like your onions.
6. Add enough water to allow the rice to complete cooking (since you will not be draining the rice, it is better to add too little and check up on it often, than to add too much).
7. If you have any meat broth from boiling any meat, you can add it to this as well. Otherwise, unless you are a vegetarian, suggest adding about 4 magi cubes for taste.
8. Add about 2 teaspoons of salt, and about ½ a teaspoon of dry red pepper (as the rice is cooking, or as you are eating the finished product, you can add more of either one of these so I really suggest starting out small, also useful if different people who will be dining have different tastes).
9. Allow the rice to continue cooking until the rice is soft. If it is not dry at this point, then switch the heat to low to allow it to dry the excess water without making the rice much softer. (Also, some people prefer to bake it once they've added the ingredients...I suggest 350 degrees or so.)
10. Once cooked, add more salt or pepper to it if you wish.

why is this page called euroafrica, everybody is going to ask himself? Well, the answer is clear I'm german, my son is half german-nigerian and my husband is nigerian...so there is the first bridge. The second reason is, that I thought of sharing a lot of information from both africa and europe.
I would like this to be a very informative site and everybody is welcome to share his or her own, experiences, cooking recipes, tips and tricks for daily life between here and africa on my site.
I would just like to ask to be friendly and polite to each other that is all!!
