Dave MacRae spent three years in Nigeria with CUSO after graduating from the University of Alberta. He spent his time there teaching french. Dave fondly recalls the 'happy people' and the pace of life, ie 'African time'. He tells one story of how his students named a mountain after him: Mt. MacRae!

Dave spoke with Mark Manns, a CUSO-VSO volunteer, at the 50th Anniversary event at UBC on December 4, 2010.
