I didn’t want to eat at the hotel and so, I walked up a few kilometres to find dinner. It turned out to be good and the waiter greeted me “Hello sir, you look to be from India. Ah, your Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi was just here a few weeks back. Very good man and very strong.” Yup, I recall now. The Indian PM was just at Africa a few days back and no, our paths did not cross. I ordered a whisky, chicken and rice African style. “Of course, we were taught about Mahatma Gandhi in school also and about Indra Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi. So many Gandhi in India, I used to be amazed.” the waiter said with a slight chuckle and I realised he was right! I gulped my whisky and chewed on two meat samosas and wandering out at times to enjoy a smoke, soak in the night air and nip in the air of Africa.
