How spectacular they were! There were long speeches praising our beloved Kaiser, extolling his virtues, raving about what a fantastic man he was, and bidding us to admire him. We were told that we were all his children, and, as his children, we must obey him. Then we all joined together to sing enthusiastically: Heil Dir im Siegerkranz, Herrscher des Vaterlands, Heil Kaiser Dir. ) Of course, the occasion was marked by a school holiday. Everyone, grown-ups and children alike, celebrated this important day.

In former times there had been a slave market here. The slaves were sold for rupees and hellers, the old currency, and hence the name. The road wound around big trees, over the occasional small hill.

Ali would cut some twigs to put under the wheels and after a bit of struggle we managed to drive on.

The plantation overseer was Ombasha Sudi, a former askari (African soldier). He supervised the nut harvest. The harvesters were paid by the palms they climbed. Sudi, a Sudanese, was a very fine man.
