  1. $500M to be spent for a gondola project in Lagos, Nigeria?!? (I almost looked at my calendar to make sure I'd not lost ~45 days and it was April 1st already) This sounds as believable as that Prince in Nigeria trying to give you money via that tired old email scam. The type that seem so stupid and unbelievable. But the one that this article explains is actually savvy in a non-obvious way. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2012/06/22/why-nigerian-e-mail-scams-are-so-crude-and-obvious/
  2. My question is what are they cetting for $500 million? If it is 15km of 3S then that's a great deal and exactly what they need. Or 40km of MDG. It sounds like a very large system rather than one or two lines. Do we have any word on what their money is actually buying them?
