A young boy just came to our gate offering to sell us a tortoise.
Andrew asked him where he found it. The answer was up the mountain, a long way up.
I paid 15,000 Tsh (about $10) for it (him?).
He was surprisingly fast on his feet when I set him down in our yard.
I know that I have saved him from being someone's dinner... but will now worry about him escaping onto the road when I am not watching.
I think we will take him up to the school house and ask the guards to build an enclosure for him.
