The local "witchdoctor" shows you all the lovely concoctions that he can brew that will cure what ails you, help you get the girl or guy with the potion brewed from the local love berries and after you get the girl make sure that all goes well with a drink made from the "local viagra". I am not making this up folks.
Then they show you a display of Rwandan dancing. They had been giving a display when we arrived so I knew what I was going to see......and I knew what was going to happen.
Yes, after they do the very cool dancing and drumming they make you participate. There was no way around it. So why not just jump right up and get the humiliation over with. Cuz I am such a Muzungu and I have absolutely no sense of rhythm. All I can say is I won't be quitting my day job. So sit back and enjoy my humiliation.
Oh yeah, I can do this. I am in the grove. But can I tell you that the woman I am dancing with had never been introduced to deodorant. And it was a warm and humid day.
Can you see the look on my face? I am trying not to notice that in most countries women do not shave their armpits. It was really difficult not to look there and be transported back to my Jr. Hi. French class where we were fascinated by the teachers very long underarm hair. She could probably braid it, we were sure that she could.....Oh yes. African dancing, humiliation. I got side tracked there.
