After doing the monthly shop for the company guest house yesterday, I stood and watched - amazed - while the supermarket employees packed the ningi (many) boxes of groceries into our landcruiser! The top two photos show the load from the front seat. I don't think this would be legal in the US or Australia!
The top left photo shows the first restaurant we entered but where the food was not forthcoming. At a cafe just a around the corner, William enjoyed a plate of chicken and chips while I took photos. Not as smart-looking as the first eatery, but at least it served a meal!
Before leaving Mwanza, William and I stopped at a rather smart-looking restaurant for lunch (see top left photo) But although a waitress asked us what we'd like for lunch, she said nothing was ready. (It was 12.30 noon!) She then disappeared through and outside door into the alley which was visible from where we sat - the kitchen presumably. She returned immediately with a plate of ugali/maize meal and ndizi kijane [fried] green bananas. Note: ndizi is the "bananas" and green=kijane. So bananas green! I suggested to William that we leave and look for another restaurant.
Just around the corner we saw a man grilling chicken outside a shop. William asked him for a portion of chicken and chips while I went indoors, fetched a bottle of water for myself and a soda for him and paid for for it inside the shop.
While William enjoyed his meal at the mirrored counter, I wandered around and took photos with my phone.
I hope you're all having a wonderful day and getting used to the NEW, IMPROVED (HAH) BLOGGER!
