After I get off my bicycle every morning I bump into Jeremiah. Or Jeremie. He works in my office building. He is from the Congo. Despite the mess he saw on his way out of there, Jeremie is upbeat and always greets me with a "Muli Bwanji?" That means "How are you today?" in ChiNyanja, which is the language I decidedly did not master while serving in Peace Corps Zambia. Jeremie seems like he can converse in about ten African language
Seeing Jeremie every day makes me smile and remember what 
I liked about my time serving in Peace Corps/Zambia specifically seeing friendly folks.
Ndili Bwino! Muli Bwanji?
