Excerpt

Banie’s demeanour changes. "Well, that's different, then. That's bloedsake — blood matters. It's in your blood. You have to go. Actually, it's quite nice to see them march all dressed up in their finery. Ja, just there by the swimming pool there's a bunch of old Herero graves. They're probably headed for them. You know, those people and their ancestors."

"Ja, it's Maharero's grave, isn't it?" I gently hint at the fact that the march commemorates the death of Samuel Maharero, the leader of the Ovaherero at the time of the genocide.

"Ja-nee," Banie reaffirms, "Dis bloedsake vir hulle. It’s about blood for them. People have to follow their blood. Now, where did you say you lived now?"

"In Canada."

"Bloody awful place," he says. "Cold and dark. We have a geologist from Canada here and he went back for a week before he came back to Usakos. Couldn’t stand the place. Where in Canada do you stay?"

"Edmonton."

"Is that near the Lakes?" He doesn’t wait for me to respond. “I know the geology of the land. There’s stones there." And he starts to talk stone. It’s a language the people here understand.
