I interrupted, “Oh, but first gentlemen, let me introduce our chef extraordinaire, Modjaji. We affectionately call her Jaji. Her name means Rain Goddess in South Africa where she is from. So, Jaji, I believe we must thank you for this needed rain over the last few days. However, we are glad it has ended.”
“Thank you Bwana Charles. I am so happy to be here”, she said in a giggle, as she poured Bryce some coffee.
“Thank you Jaji”, Bryce said.
“Welcome Bwana Bryce”. She replied.
“Jaji, we are hungry and ready when you are”, I said.
“OK, Bwana”. She said.
“Ok Bryce, now gives us that personal resume”. I said.
“You bet. Let me take my first sip of Jaji’s coffee.” he said picking up his cup.
“Man, that’s good stuff”, he added.
“OK, let’s see. I am a retired Colonel in the South African Army. I am originally from J-burg. My wife and I now reside near Nairobi and have 3 wonderful children who are grown and still live in South Africa. I started hunting as a boy and when I retired ten years ago I decided to bring that passion to Kenya. I was one of the assistants to Dr. Charles Henley when he came to East Africa to begin his biology and botany research. He and I hunted together during his spare time and decided to make this a real business a couple of years ago. You may know, his real name is Dr. Charles Henley. We just call him Bwana Charles” he ended.
“Wow, Bryce, has it really been that long?” I added.
