Genre:
Discourse
Description:
I think this was a lucky strike. A lady from Guinea Bissau walked by and I wanted to know, if she spoke Nalu. She didn't but p002 said the the wife of one of his 'brothers' is from Guinea Bissau and speaks Nalu well. We sent for her and she was immediatly disposed to work a little. We took the session under the Mango tree accross the path from p002's house. During the telling of the recipe and the personal history I remained at the location, and might have even walked into the frame once, I had forgotten about the wide angle lens. The audio recorder was not placed nicely for me to avoid walking into the frame. We also had to take care of her baby who would not quit crying. I had told p002 to also steer the conversation to the misadventures when he was supposed to broker the marriage deal for her. Once they started, I walked away, came back once to check on the battery levels and then a second time when they told me the converstion is over. This time I forgot to take pictures of the recording setup.
