Mary’s son Godfrey took us to some giant craters near to our house. We hiked to the top where we met these kids, herding sheep. Godfrey gave one of them some money (about TSh100) and told us we would see something fantastic. He told us that the boy would jump down the crater. This gave me the fear, but the children were all very excited, and led us back down to the bottom of the hill. At the top the one child stood there, and I prepared myself to see a break neck dash down the scree.
But the child just sat down, and slowly slid down the mountain. Despite the fear I had had, I found myself a little disappointed not to see some death-defying stunt.
