A la recherche des problèmes … / Looking for Trouble …


Fumier / Manure

Celui qui marche sur le fumier, devra se laver les pieds (Proverbe Bahumbu – République Démocratique du Congo (RDC)). – Qui s’y frotte, s’y pique.

Whoever walks on manure, will have to wash his feet (Bahumbu proverb – Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)). – If you go looking for trouble, you will find it.


  1. That wording makes trouble even more disgusting. That’s a highly useful proverb from the DRC. Good to know all the pearls of wisdom that comes from a major area in Africa where my ancestors plausibly came from.


  2. And the world is full of the stuff!
