I had a sweet Kenyan lady come & catch me up with housework & house chores today. She worked for 5 hours, left everything gleaming, & adamantly refused a lift to Oxford from our village, insisting she’d walk. I pointed out a lovely quiet country path with flowering hedges outside our house, a short cut. She refused, saying she did not walk alone in “bush-land.” First time I’ve heard Oxford compared to the bush!!
