Laura and the Potato

What's excellent and cool is that the longer we live in Aketi, the
more people know us and appreciate the work we do here!

On Adam and my daily walk yesterday, we encountered Richard, an
occasional tracker we employ, whose wife thanked us for the work by
giving us this HUGE potato to take home, as a gift! Free!

The day before, we'd gotten a free pineapple from one of Adam's
advanced karate students!

The thing I *most* appreciate, though, is that when I walk down the
street, instead of yelling out "Mondele! Mondele!" (Lingala for
"whitey"), people yell out "Lola! Lola!"

It does have a much nicer ring to it!
