MY VEGETARIAN RASTA BROTHER. WE AGREE ON ONE THING. WE ARE ONE FAMILY, A HUMAN FAMILY. WE ARE BROTHERS AND SISTERS NO MATTER WHERE WE WERE BORN. THANK YOU FOR SPONTANEOUS HOSPITALITY!

ANOTHER RASTA BROTHER WHO SPONTANEOUSLY WELCOMED ME HIS AND HIS FAMILY HOME. WONDERFUL CHEERFUL AND FRIENDLY PEOPLE LIVING ON THE TOP OF THE HILLS. THANK YOU!

I AM PERFORMING AND DANCING WITH THE FIRE TOGETHER WITH ORPHAN MUSICIAN ARTISTS FROM MANZINI TOWN. AT FIRE HOUSE LODGE. I GOT PAID FOR THE SHOW BY THE WHITE MANAGER BUT THE ARTISTS WEREN'T PAID FOR SOME MONTHS FOR A FEW CONCERTS PLAYING MARIMBA. THEY WERE EVEN NOT ALLOWED TO EAT WITH THE GUESTS BUT JUST THE LEFTOVERS. REALITY IS SAD. SOCIAL AND ECONOMICAL INJUSTICE IS ALARMING WHERE THE WHITE PEOPLE WITH MONEY CAN LIVE AND MAKE PROFIT ON THE LOCAL HARD WORKING PEOPLE... I HAVE SEEN IT ALL THROUGH AFRICA. IT'S NOT AL ABOUT THE SKIN COLOUR AND IN DEED SOMEONE FROM THE LOCALS WHO HAS SOME MONEY CAN EXPLOIT THE OTHERS BUT USUALLY WON'T HAVE SO MANY PRIVILEGES AND MONEY CAPITAL OR INCOME SOURCE FROM THE WEST COUNTRIES LIKE THE WHITES...
