Above: with my awesome headteacher, Mr. Ambalo. Thanks to him for all of these pictures! (and for explaining to everyone there that calling white people “mzungu” makes them feel bad)

Above: Greeting one of the adorable little boys from the wedding party. He was following me around and hiding every time I looked at him – too cute!

Above: with the cute little kids from the wedding party. They were trailing behind me, too shy to actually talk to me, so Ambalo asked them if they wanted a picture and they all came RUNNING! I squatted down and they all grabbed a wad of my hair before he snapped the shot. So funny!

  1. Muzungu is not an offensive word…. it is a swahili word meaning someone who speaks English. It translates to English person if you like. You make it feel like it is a racist word. Your headteacher should have known better.

    1. Actually, you should know better. Ask anyone who has ever been called mzungu, and they will unanimously agree that they do not like it. A name is much preferred, rather than an identity based on the color of skin.
