However, unlike other places, a vacation in Nigeria usually means a trip to the village. This is often because not very many people have the resources to travel anywhere else just for the sake of relaxing and cooling off.

I've used both Scrivener and Evernote to organize my notes. You can put images and sound files in both, organize your projects into folders, etc. Good way to make sure like scraps are grouped together, which makes them easier to find. Evernote lets you tag things, which is useful
