I Have a Name

“Katika America ninaitwa Teneasha, Katika Loitokitok ninaitwa Nambaso.”

My baba (home-stay dad) is such a character, he’s great. So here’s how I got my new name:

Scene:  Baba calls me into the living room. He’s holding the name card Peace Corps gave the families with the name of the volunteer they would be hosting.


Baba: This is your name? (points to name card)

Me: Yeah…Teneasha

Baba: This is not your name.

Me: hehehe…ok

Baba: Your name is Nambaso…its a Maasai name meaning Lady who crosses the seas.

Me: *all grins* thanks baba
