She always asked me, if I had been on safari, every time she had not seen me for a while. I always found it strange, why she should assume that I would go and watch big animals, just because I am a white man. I told her, that I had not been on Safari - only on vacation. She shook her head and continued what she was doing. Later on I learned that safari is the Swahili word for any kind of trip or journey.
