Hot day again today. Karen worked on the upcoming safari and I watched "The Wizard of Oz" with Charlini--who loved it even though she doesn't understand English. On more than one occasion, I noticed Lusi and Juliana both also watching. It was hard to explain exactly what this was in Swahili, so I just said it was a story that most Americans knew and that pleased them. Charlini found the witch a bit frightening but loved Dorothy and the viatu nyekundu (red shoes). I loved watching her watch it. Some things just transcend language and custom.
