Play It Again

This man played a duet for E. and me on our engagement in April 2012. He turned up at our table again today, four years later, to play us a song. We were at a traditional South African restaurant: three-legged cooking pots (potjies) over wood fires. OBSERVATION: A Swiss lunch partner served himself some South African curry offal (afval in Afrikaans). I asked him what he made of it. He said softly and politely: "I wouldn't have it every day. Once in a while." See Engagement for a video of the original duet.
