Mzungu, Stand Up!

While we were shopping for dinner on Saturday, we stopped at Pastor's shop to replace the lightbulb on the Mate, which had blown out. Two little girls, Winnie and Divine, came to chat with me.

Later, while waiting for Scott to bring the last of the shopping from the hardware store, I was approached by four children who were playing in under the veranda where I was sitting. One of the girls said, "Mzungu, you are sitting!" I said "Yes, I am. I'm tired." She said, "Mzungu, stand up! You will dirty your clothes!" The children then asked me to take their pictures and, as usual, giggled hysterically when I showed them the digital image.
