A New Beast, a new Beginning
… and this one isn’t blue.
Stay tuned for news on our new truck, where it came from, why we chose it, and how we are adapting it to suit our travel needs. Just have to find my spare “Ndeke Luka” decal for the door.
Why Ndeke Luka?
Ndeka Luka is is Sango for “Freebird.” Sango is the most commonly used language in the Central African Republic. There are several meanings here:
– Radio Ndeke Luka is an independent radio station in the Central African Republic; one that I worked very hard to support. Now, more than ever, Radio Ndeke Luka will be a voice for peace and reconciliation in that troubled land.
– “Freebird” is, of course, a song by Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Southern Rock Band and Freebird is a good name for a camper.
And thus, our camper is named “Ndeke Luka.”
