Wish I had a picture to prove it, but for right now, know that Zumba is alive and very well in Bujumbura, Burundi. I’m not saying anything else right now, but just wait until I tell you the rest of my story from Burundi. This place is the sleeper of the trip, the stocking at Christmas, the bubble gum in the middle of the lollipop, the prize in the Cracker Jacks.
P.S. I am grateful to all my buddies from my class in Portland, and especially my instructor Emma Holder, because without the years of practice I’ve had, there is no way I could have kept up with the intense workout this very fit Ugandan instructor gives three mornings a week to a room full of people who care about exercise in Beautiful Burundi’s version of Central Park.
