Innocent Muzungu* Attacked by Ratty Sheep
I was walking home from the office on Sunday, minding my own business, when a sheep looked up from his grazing, and shot me the evil eye. Before I knew it, he head butted my left thigh with enough force to knock me down in the mud. Gabriella, an Argentinian doctor who weighs no more than 90 pounds, came to my rescue. She was also head butted, but somehow managed to stay on her feet. The pics above are of the perpetrator and victom (note the sheep's-head shaped bruise).
Unfortunately, the whole neighborhood witnessed this ugly attack. Several neighbors approached us on our way home and appologized on the sheep´s behalf.
*Muzungu is Swahili for "white person," as in "how are you Muzungu?¨(frequent greeting by neighborhood children).
