Learning Lingala is Delicious

I feel like Cleve would be so proud of me, but a girl came up to the house today selling bananas door-to-door (there are a lot of girls like this, who carry big trays of things on their heads for sale), and I said to her, in Lingala, “How much” and she replied, in Lingala, “3 are 20 francs.” I THEN said, in Lingala “We will take 100 francs worth”

And now we have 15 delicious fresh bananas to eat! All three of us (Adam, myself, and Detective Munch) are so happy with my Lingala skills!!
