My daughter is in Tanzania this summer for a secular service project.  Her first Swahili:  Jina langu ni Amelia, Ninatoka jimbo la Arizona which I hope means "my name is Amelia, I am from Arizona."

    Hopefully the reputation of Joe Arpaio hasn't made it to Tanzania... they'll think she's raiding them.

    Google translate is in on the leftist Swahili translation scam as well :P
