“Karibu (your welcome),” Mohammad nodded. “Glad you are with us this evening. Anything else?”
“I’ve got a little more work to do before you close,” Charles said, finishing his scotch. “In a few minutes, bring me a cup of coffee, please. I do need to drive home later.”
“Will do, Bwana K,” Mohammad replied.
