Our New Friends

Among all the little kids who live in Kalisizo we are quite the celebrities.  Mzungu is the Luganda word for non-African person and everywhere we walk children of all ages greet us with a chorus of "Hello mzungu"' "How are you mzungu?" "Good evening mzungu!" or just "Mzungu, mzungu, mzungu!"  The little ones are especially enthralled.  When we go for evening jogs we are often trailed by a group of kids or little ones will cheer us on the side of road and give us high fives as we go by.  Walking home for lunch the other day we encountered this trio heading home from school as well as a sports group that was just thrilled to hang out with Leigh.
