While we were at the bridge, we noticed a European looking man in an area next to the bridge, who appeared to be the foreman of some type of project. We waved at him and he came over to talk to us. He is Italian and he has lived and worked for a construction company all over Africa and the middle east. He said they were building a base for the project of re-doing the cables inside the bridge, some of which have broken. The bridge was build in 1985. He said he speaks 8 languages. He spoke English very well. He said he was born in Kenya and his first language was Swahili because his nanny was Swahili. We didn't think of taking his picture - we try to be very careful to only take pictures of people if we ask them first, out of respect for them. The elders asked him if they could give him some church literature and he accepted some and then he gave us his business card. It was really fun to meet him. We also talked to some of the local people about their fish and why we were there.
