Mzungu Fever

Last week I went to Gasabo district to do some filming for a short video we’re making for work.   It’s been awhile since I’ve seen such an intense display of Mzungu Fever.  We were a busload of about 15. Among us was one mzungu. One. The kids went wild. They would catch a brief glimpse of white skin blur past them on the bus and would scream “MZUNGU!!!”, and run after the bus waving and laughing.

I said to a friend last week that I wondered and hoped that I would be at least half as excited as these kids to see my Lord and Savior as these kids were to see a mzungu.
