Description:This story was recorded in Amedzofe at a meeting with 10 elderly people. The 10 people were divided into two groups and we talked with each group for an hour. In the first session Sammy interviewed the first five people about what has changed since they were young and what they think Amedzofe will be like in the future. In the second session, Sammy asked the other five people to tell their life stories and then asked if there were other stories or folk tales they could tell. This story was part of the first session in Amedzofe. Judith talks about what has changed since she was young. Then, Sammy asks some questions and Yunis and C.K. also respond. Wisdom then translates into English. The English translation is only included on the audio file.The story and conversation are in Avatime and are then translated into English by Wisdom. Judith is the main speaker of this recording, she tells a story about what has changed since she was young. When she has finished, Sammy asks her some questions, to which she, C.K. and Yunis respond. Wisdom translates into English. Other people present are Saskia and Rebecca.
