So many entertaining things happen in my life in Swaziland. These are the moments I will want to remember because they make me laugh, and they show insight into my daily routine. These moments are often hard to photograph and usually last only a minute or two. I will start sharing them with you in this occasional series.
I was working in my garden and went to get a hoe. I went the back way, so my bhuti didn’t see me coming. He was standing at the pump dancing along to the music playing. I called him out on this in siSwati because although he regularly sings loudly, I have never seen him dance. He denied dancing. I told him he definitely was dancing.
I collected the hoe and returned the way I came. My bhuti was dancing again! And again, he denied it!
This was my youngest, out-of-school host brother. He is the person I interact with the least on my homestead, which made this even funnier than it should have been.
