After the controversy I stirred up writing about sex – or rather not wrting about sex – something a little less contentious.

When I go abroad I always feel it’s polite to speak at least a little of the language. In East Africa, that means Swahili. It’s tricky, but not impenetrably so.

Another brand new page awaits you – Teach Yourself Swahili. Check it out. It’ll help you out of trouble, though there’s a reasonable chance it’ll get you into trouble in the first place…..

BTW, written Swahili is about as phonetic as it gets; what it looks like is what it sounds like. But a word of warning. Read the footnote on the page. It may keep you out of trouble.

Toodle pip!
