The mzungu baby

Aimee, one of the diocesan staff, had a baby recently and yesterday we all went round to visit. I got a chance to hold the baby and someone joked that it was a “mzungu” (white person). Sure enough, the skin on the arms was paler than mine (admittedly now quite well tanned).
The baby presents were definitely in Rwandan custom : 2 crates of Fanta, a hen and a large matoke (savoury banana).
