    Rycroft speaking with a Zulu informant who lives in Swaziland. Rycroft asks the 'ikhehla' (old man) what his name is and where he was born. They establish that they both speak Afrikaans and so they continue their conversation in Afrikaans, talking about the informant's father. He explains that his father was a part of the Boer war. He tells him a bit about his life and they laugh together.
