Just Photos...

Sanibonani bekunene!

This past weekend, Jenn and I helped Jaci judge a "debate" (it was just speeches in support of a topic, nothing against) about HIV prevention in schools and I took some photos. I'll write more about the event later.

This is the everyday scene at Richfield's Butchery and Restaurant in Nhlangano. If you're lucky, they carry the big frozen pigs through the dining room while you're eating. If you come to visit me, we'll be eating lunch here one day. They have AMAZING friend chicken and spicy wings and some Indian food and lots of Swazi traditional food. It's BY FAR the best place to eat in Nhlangano (even better than KFC). Besides, you never see people sawing the heads off of frozen pigs at KFC.

Jenn, Jaci and I had spring rolls for dinner. We cooked up some carrots, onions and green peppers, then wrapped the veggies into spring rolls with cold ramen noodles, peanut sauce and diced apples and tomatoes. Delicious! If anyone is sending me a care package, you should toss in some spring roll wrappers (the ones you just dip in water, not the ones for fried spring rolls) because they are delicious. Like a diet vegetarian burrito...
This is the road and the mountain in Jaci's community. It's amazingly beautiful and so scenic that the mountain in the distance (the little triangular one) is on the 100 Emalangeni bill. There's some legend about the mountain, which is why you can't climb it. Something about important people being buried there or something.

Me, Jenn and Jaci on our long walk (in the rain) from the debate on Friday. It hasn't stopped raining this past week and I'm soooooooooooo tired of being soggy!
