Music often greets ‘important’** outside guests on entering a village. Sometimes villagers will sing you off as well. As luck would have it, I have video of my very first gift of a chicken. During my recent May trip to Angola, where I was visiting a World Vision project in the central highlands around Huambo, I was presented with a rooster by a local vip. My very first chicken gift – though unfortunately the airline would not allow him to accompany me on the return flight.
**important is in the eye of the beholder. I’m not trying to suggest that I agree or disagree with that assessment in this case 😉
Did you eat your gift before leaving? 😀
The rooster ended up ‘re-gifted’ to a young Angolan who had been assisting with my project visit.
