It’s time for trimming the palm trees – they’re harvesting the palm nuts for oil and also clearing off the dead branches; cleaning up just in time for the big church conference next week. It’s a looooong way up there. The guy up the tree actually is from Congo and speaks Lingala. It’s fun to chat with him, but do you think I can even make my mouth bring Lingala out of my brain??? I understand every word he says, but I stutter and stumble over my tongue and want to insert Sango and Fulfulde into my speech! I get a big smile from him anyway!
