I was using my African Tesco carrier bag yesterday and noticed that it had a ticket still on it. It said No 2 Babakasheshe. It was obviously the second basket of veg that Steve needed to pick up one day. This is the name that he is known as by many of the locals in both Amani and Tanga. Kasheshe is a sort of funny man or joker and Baba is father or Daddy, so it sort of means fatherly and funny, which he is. As such I got the name Dadakasheshe – sister of the funny man! Here he is proundly showing off his flowering banana plant.


Can’t imagine why they think he’s funny at all!
