My beloved camera is broken. Of course this had to happen while I was in Tanzania- arguably the most beautiful country in the world (right up there with Turkey and New Zealand).
But there's good news. Because God loves me, the only other expat in this community happens to be Chingo (a Japanese IT guy who loves to repair electronics). Chingo is with the Japanese Volunteer Corps. He's going to look at my Japanese camera and do his best.
The word Chingo means "neck" in Swahili. When Tanzanian women try to get Chingo's attention, they say his name and make the international symbol for choking. I find this extremely amusing.
