The walk to work takes forty minutes each morning. I walked it alone once – the family was running on such extreme Africa time that I got up and left. It was nerve racking because there are boys who catcall and all that. But I had my favorite cap on so I kept it low over my forehead and my eyes straight ahead and I was okay.
Usually I do the walk with Princely. We feed off of our shared traits during this walk. It results in a heated debate, a new idea for Uzima, or just a lot of really loud singing.
