Bakozi Ndirikwendela, nightwatchman: 'I long for the time when the tourists come back. The war has stopped them coming. But I clean the rooms and make sure that the land stays in good order. There's enough work. Sweeping up the dust in the dry season, cleaning the mud in the rainy season. I come here from the refugee camp each day, except on Sundays. Then I go to the mass with my four children and my wife. I originally had seven children, but three of them died during the cholera epidemic. I still think of them every day.'.
