It was about one and a half years ago that I finally I arrived where I had always wanted to be and do what I had always wanted-- teach students, support small language communities and conduct research on African languages on my doorstep.

1912, to work with Kamba natives. The Kamba people is one of the largest

some 230,000 persons (adapted from the introduction).
