Dear Brazzaville: I Am Not Jesus.

Seriously: I am not Jesus. Being white and having a beard does not mean you are.

I know it is done in jest and good fun, but it's getting old. Whenever I go anywhere in the city, I am followed by catcalls of "Jesu! Jesu!" This would not be such a burden if they did not get offended when I offer know reply. I think it would take the patience of someone like Jesus Christ to handle the relentless calls for attention by an entire city.

Tomorrow I will try out putting my hair in dreds. If that does not work, I think it's about time to don a bandana for any outdoor excursion. The headgear diminishes the resemblance.
