Before I forget…

The girls discovered yesterday and today that mzungu hair is extremely soft.  One was daring enough to rub my head while we were watching a movie yesterday and I was not paying attention.  She laughed in delight and gasped at the same time at the softness.  Immediately, she informed the rest and they all have to come and see.  In no time, a gaggle of girls were feeling my hair.  Of course Michael being next to me was also examined.  It was like the part in Hook when the kid rubs Robin Williams face to determine if he really is Peter Pan and he exclaims, “It’s really you!”
