You have to first ďrunĒ to be labeled a ďrunnerĒ. I will not participate in such outlandish suffering.

Bump! Unlike running, I havenít given up on learning languages!

Iíve been concentrating on TWI (what is spoken in Ghana) as of recently, but still have the biggest vocab of Swahili.  I just came to realize itís extremely rare to come across Swahili speakers. There seems to be Ghanaians all over the place however!

Iíve also dabbled in Wolof (spoken in Senegal) Amharic (spoken in Ethiopia) and a bit of Somali.....itís been a blast and the most Iíve used my brain in years. Iíve been going around to African markets/stores etc. while on tour and making a fool of myself trying to talk to people. Most are shocked and elated, some indiffernt, and a few annoyed/offended. Itís been a worthy journey I plan to keep at!

I'm pretty sure The Jauntee could fill MSG 13 nights in a row w/ people who have seen us and were annoyed by the music.

I've tried to figure out a bit of Amharic due to the fact we stayed over there for a few months.
It's a beautiful language but not an easy task to say the least.
Instead of having to plan and save for your next vacation, why not work on creating a life you don't feel the need to escape from...

I suspect putin and trump have something to do with this
that's great. people are stupid.
My records are my media for music.

So hard. Amharic and Somali are way more complicated than the other three I mentioned. The grammar is tough, but as an english speaker, the pronunciation is even tougher. Lots of odd, guttural, throaty sounds.
