Introducing A Gondwe

This is Mr. Gondwe (or as he is called in Zambia, A Gondwe, the "A" being a sign of respect, like saying "Mr."). He is one of our guards/groundskeepers at the farm and perhaps the sweetest man ever! He trys to help me learn Nyanja by speaking it only...most of which I just smile and nod. Even when I greet him with the basic greeting he never responds how I expect and I usually have no idea what he is saying. He does know a bit of English which he often resorts to once he sees the confused look on my face. He's so sweet you just want to eat him...well, not really...whoever came up with that phrase should perhaps rethink it's implications!
