In a whisper, “Awabariki, Makali (bless you). Shukrani, (thank you) Bwana Kifaru.”

November 1, 2012

(“Anyone see the third one?”   “No,” Benjamin answers. “But you can bet she’s here.”) 

The lightning has knocked out our electricity, there is no light. Miles uses his flashlight and finds the switch to turn on the interior lights. We have light. Using battery power we probably have 3 – 4 hours before it is dead. Jacob helps Benga to a seat at the dining table. He is shivering and visibly shaken-up. The sound of hail hammering the camper is deafening.

“Watch your head, Jacob. This thing only has a 6 1/2 foot ceiling. It is too small for five people.”

“Well, thank goodness we could get inside as quickly as we did. Crowded or not, it’s all we have to protect us,” Jacob answers. He starts helping Benga.

In a whisper, “Awabariki, Makali (bless you). Shukrani, (thank you) Bwana Kifaru.”

I reach out and touch his hand, “Wewe ni kuwakaribisha rafiki yangu (you are welcome, my friend).”
