Another day in the South of Durban – or the endless search for chicken legs
The nights are hot and the humidity is high. Swatting is the daily experience of these days in South Africa. But this does not say we were spending our day at the beach or do nothing. It’s much more enjoyable to share friend’s life and the time we have together.
Let me tell what happened yesterday First I went with Zama to the local mall to get some bread and milk (the basics) for breakfast. To get unfrozen chicken legs we failed. Then after breakfast (coffee, boiled eggs, avocado, rolls, chees, sausage…) we started to have a tripp to the South including picking up SimingeZwi (called Simi, the first sun of Zama and Khaya).
In Amanzimtoti we had our lunch in one of the local malls, what has been a special experience for the two young boys including the playground in the mall while the ladies (Zama and Elke plus the baby) tried again to find some unfrozen chicken legs. They found brown European roll and finally the chicken legs.
Then we drove with the chicken legs and the three children to Umgababa South of Amanzimtoti, where Khaya’s mother Maggie is living. There we stayed in a lovely surrounding (Mgababa river, the near ocean, silence, very hospitable people) for the final supper, which was prepared by all family members: mountains of meet, bred, salads and the home-made (by Maggie) tarte, mode of several layers of marie biscuits and granadilla cream – sweet and wonderful. The driving home in the night was the final activity of this day. The chicken legs were wonderful.
