When you're seven years old, growing up in Tanzania....
....not only do you get to spend a few weeks learning about the Masai tribe, but then they visit your class and teach you how to kill lions and jump really high.
(and yes, Lauren Clarke, that is Flat Stanley!)
....you organize the neighborhood kids into races, using everything in our yard that has wheels. (Maybe we need more bikes?!?)
....you swim in HOPAC House competitions. Go Green House!
....you get to cheer on the Tanzanian national soccer team (definitely the underdogs) when they BEAT Morocco 3-1!!!
...and you even get to sit on your teacher's lap, 'cuz she came too. And she even let you paint her face.
