Maebe Mingi!

Maebe means “smart” in Lingala, and “mingi” means many or very! And man, is it true when it comes to our little quarantined chimp -- he is SO clever, and I am never more amazed than when I see him quickly picking things up...

Watching, learning. I only wish that he could watch his mother and learn some chimp things, instead of learning how to play Lost Cities and needlepoint and highlight scientific papers.

When Cleve was here, we tried a little sign language with Aketi, and I wonder if Adam and I continued that tutelage what it would inspire!
