When the first explorers visited East Africa, the local Bantu populations called them "wazungu", from the verb "kuzunguka", to spin around, as a result of the explorers' propensity to get lost in their wanderings... A white man meets a black girl. Then the girl disappears. The white man tries to understand what happened to her and eventually finishes a travelogue.
