Our household, like a struggling African country plagued by pre-colonialism, colonialism, post-colonialism, Imperialism, the Bilderburgers, the Skull and Bones, the IMF and neo-conservative global economic systems, has become dependent on the generous aid of outsiders.
Margaret, who came here from the bustling city of Bukoba, has helped us to develop. She brought with her wine, cheese and her youthful idealistic enthusiasm but mostly she brought with her practical skills to help us move forward.
Alas, we have become guest dependent. When Margaret leaves---will we sink back into the swamp of pre-development? Will we be able to continue to follow her example? Will we be able to take ownership of our own development? Is this a sustainable situation? These are big questions.
When will more guests arrive?
