The Only Mzungo in Running Shorts

We have been staying at The Mavuno Project compound for 12 days now and have become used to the amenities, pit latrines, cold showers, three square meals prepared by Mama Kennedy, and the occasional howling at 2:30 a.m. from the local dogs. Staying at the Mavuno compound with us are three individuals. Two are from Germany, and the other is from South Africa. It has been nice to interact with other visitors on a regular basis and to share stories and experiences that cover three continents. Their time here is short but their work is very important. All three individuals are in some fashion working with Mavuno on the Water tank projects.
