mmm, today was a good day. i say that apprehensively, because it wasn’t amazing. but in contrast to the generally poor disposition of a few days past, things shaped up alright today.
we got out of classes early so i went to morogoro with many others. finally used internet for an hour. got a pair of flip flops and a konga for wrapping/towel, etc. looking forward to getting a shirt or two made. rode the daladala all by myself! a confusing experience, but it is nice to just throw myself into it and get it over with. baptism by fire.
i came home and baba had visitiors. they mostly laughed at me which is fine, i only said hi and then went to take a shower. he is still sick, and i asked mama, she said it hasn’t happened before. gives things some context; wasn’t sure if the kids were used to that or anything. had a great nite for language. a lot of kiswahili came out of my mouth, even if i had to look it up first. in due time.
i wonder how happy everyone is. i already asked that, but it’s true.
listening to graham nash’s album. good stuff so far.
