Bata, Bata, Bata Bukini

'Kay, so I'm still going through my video and notes from the student, teacher, and parent testimonials, and I'm actually staying home from school tomorrow in order to finish that up as well as to do a bit of admin work, so this post is just gonna be a throwback for all you older readers out there who want to relive their misspent youth.

The title of this entry can be translated as "Duck, Duck, Goose" and refers to that game of yore we all knew and loved.  The Swahili version is a bit different; there's no ducks and no goose, rather a rotten egg that smells bad like a samosa - I kid you not - but the competitive concept is the same.  The leader picks an unsuspecting participant to race until he/she a.) gets back to his place in the circle safely, b.) is tagged out, or c.) face-plants into the ground from exertion and over-excitement.  Not sure which outcome occurred here, but the kids were definitely having fun!
