It feels good to be home after about six months.. I am surely enjoying all the food i missed....and ofcourse being around mommy is the spice of my life..She is such an amazing woman.. i could never trade her for anything.. The weather isnt so bad like i thought it would be. Ofcourse this is our winter season, but i must say it feels like summer. i do not need to walk around in boots and scarfs like i was doing in Mzansi.
Politics seems dirty as usual. I cant say much on the new leader we have. so far she has at least tried to bring us fuel. Can't agree much on some of the policies she is trying to bring just to appease the donors.. When will my people ever learn to work hard and not live a life of just receiving. Oh well, it appears we are no longer hosting the African Union summit. i was really looking forward. I thought it would put us on a platform..But well if it has been done for a good cause, then long-live genuine democracy in Malawi.
Devaluation seems another hicup. Malawi is very poor. I feel the devaluation percentage is too much. I have noted that alot of people in the Urban areas are already struggling so much. what more with my people in the village? God help us.

The Spot is called Carnivores. The Carnivores restaurant is situated in natural surroundings, facing the Krugersdorp hills. Being a meat -lover alone doesn’t justify you to visit this place. You have to be adventurous and dynamic. When I was told, this was where my friends and I were heading to for dinner, I said, “wait a minute, I love meat but I don’t think I am that fierce to be called a carnivore”. I thought the menu would just be the random beef, chicken, or pork. My word! Crocodile, Impala, Zebra, Kudu and other game animals were also the specialty of the night..For a minute I thought I was in dreamland, until when the waiter came over with a round of crocodile. The meat looked tender and appetizing, but the thought of how a live crocodile looks and its character of devouring human beings, I said no no no, tonight I will not be so adventurous. We were four of us. My chicken and pork was enough for me but to my amazement the rest of my friends ate everything else that came through. By the way this is how service is done, U get seated at a table, like the norm in most restaurants, you order your drinks and then for the main meal, they put a flag on your table and they bring different meat in rounds. So if first round brings chicken, second round brings pork and so forth. You get to eat as much as you want. They only stop serving when you ‘surrender’ and that’s by putting the flag down. Absolutely hilarious! Definitely one of my favorite spots in South Africa.
