The Kinky Green


We’re Totally Clicking

Posted in Peace Corps Adventures by Joy on March 1, 2013

One of the questions I kept getting before I left was, “Africa? So you’ll learn a click language?” No clicking in Nyanja, or in Zambia, as far as I’ve heard.

But I had to laugh the other morning… One afternoon I was playing with the baby at my homestay, making different faces & noises. The next morning as I walked in for breakfast, she looked up at me with a huge grin & clicked her tongue. Now when she sees me, she clicks & I click back.

So, yes, I moved to Africa & taught a baby to click.
