A little "Foreigner" reminiscence ...

Now that hadesgirl is fully caught up on the series (yes, it CAN be done!) and, when last heard from linzday was only a couple volumes away from that point as well, a little favourite moment indulgence (one wonders if Gini-ji has raised or fathered a kid or kids of his own ... ya never know with such a secretive character). From "Destroyer":
And it was impossible to keep Cajeiri out of the works: Algini, taking his turn at Cajeiri-watch, took the young rascal in charge before breakfast, assuring he stayed aboard and uninjured, explaining the tackle and the working of the sail, explaining--Algini having once lived near the sea--how a wind not exactly aft drove the boat forward, and the mathematics of it all. Cajeiri sopped it up like a sponge--his other guards had not been so knowledgeable--and dogged Algini's steps like a worshipful shadow.
