Shadow on the wall of a very old kraal, Zululand.
The settlement was ancient, long abandoned, but you could tell from the trackers that they were impressed – very quiet and respectful of the ‘old people’ who had once lived there.
Zulu, or isiZulu, is a lovely, liquid language to listen to – full of clicks and pops, subtle and expressive. This time the tone was full of respect and awe.
