Despite the fact that I only brought 6 skirts and like 10 pairs of undies we managed to pack Jason’s beloved Wii in our limited supply of luggage when we moved here. He had actually gotten some advise that it would be a fun way to get to know locals, have them over and play together. I did not buy it.
Until a few weeks ago. Since we do not have a TV we had to hook it up to our projector. Jason had not even tried this in the 4 months we have been here because we have always been too overwhelmed, busy, and the power situation is pretty sketchy at times. He finally decided to bust it out last week and the results were hilarious. There was soon an audience peering through our windows laughing and saying things like “Jason anendesha gari na piki piki” Jason drives the car and vespa. Jason invited a couple guys in to play and I snuck a video of the whole experience. Trying to explain how the Wii works in Kiswahili was pretty amusing. The guys seemed to enjoy themselves and so Jason seems to be right (darn it, I hate it when that happens).
