Before the party for Lib and Dennis there were some house keeping chores to attend to. One was the installation of the purple potty in the garden. A favorite dog died and is buried under the thing. Quite classy.
We also had to visit Dennis and Eric’s grandmother, Akiki, before the party. Dennis was being teased by his cousins that he had failed to drop in on her sooner, and she, Akiki, was angry. This was of course not true. When we dropped by, Akiki couldn’t have been happier. They think she is around 90, but she doesn’t know exactly when as he was born. Her son, Godfrey, was Dennis and Eric’s father. He was a lawyer, as was their mother, Rosemary. Both were quite successful. So, here is the crowd visiting Akiki in her little house.
From left to right are Blondie (Lucy), Baby-Ma (Cathy), Barb, Emmett, Akiki, Lib, Dennis, Ann-Elise and Rebecca. Blondie and Baby-Ma are cousins of Dennis, Ann-Elise forks for Kadafrica and lives with Eric and Rebecca. Rebecca is Eric’s wife. Akiki speaks mostly Rotoro and Swahili, although I think she understands a great deal more English than she will admit. Dennis
speaks some is fluent in Swahili, and his cousins speak English and Swahili and Rotoro, so there was communication.
Eric and Rebecca normally have a guard at the house at night. Here he is with Eric and Dennis. Yes the gun is loaded, and he does seem to know how to use it.
Here are Lib and Rachael ready to party. Rachael is from Fort Portal and lives with Eric and Rebecca, actually in the small house in back with her four year old son, Gerald. Rachael does cleaning and bookkeeping work for Kadafrica. She just purchased some land, and will, in a few years move there. Lib looks fantastic!
Here are Blondie, Marunga (another cousin), Baby-Ma and Rachael, ready to party!
And of course, here are Lib and Dennis towards the end of the evening.
Without going into detail, it was great party.
