Re: DC folks: Zanzibar pt 2
- I thought it was a bit ambitious to throw a birthday party in Zanzibar
(although it might as well be in Africa as far as I'm concerned)

"Simple reciprocity is less controversial than it should be- whether as a
standard of fairness or even as an appropriate operationalization of the
Golden Rule.... An eye for an eye is hardly fair when one relies far
more heavily on eyesight in his work than the other. A beer for a beer is
hardly fair when the person who bought the first round is far richer than
the one obliged by that rule to buy the next"

I had a hilarious incident at the African Museum of Art in DC:
I was with some friends from Mali, and we stopped in the souvenir shop to
see what we could sell all our stuff for. Then I saw a "Touareg Hat", a
pastoral head covering that looks sort of like a Vietnamese rice-farmers
Only problem is that Touaregs don't wear hats;they wear turbans. When I
explained this minor detail to the shop owner, he said, "Yes, and what
kind of hat is it?"
I said, "Well, to be honest it is a hat worn by the indigenous Songai
(Sonrhai) people of western Mali, and also the Peuhl herders."
He said, "Uh...how do you know?"
"I LIVE with them."
"Uh, oh yes, it pains me to see this since I too am from Afica, but the
vendor put the information on the item and I cannot change it."

Damn, I knew I forgot something. Zanzibar is at 700 Water St SW in DC.
Also, there's a free concert at the African art museum that day at 2pm. I
went to the one last month (another Ghanaian band) and they were really
good. I recommend checking this one out.
Sounds from Africa: Akatanwia
National Museum of African Art
Laryea Addy and his group, Akatanwia, offer the hypnotic rhythms,
delicate grace, and
