So many entertaining things happen in my life in Swaziland. These are the moments I will want to remember because they make me laugh, and they show insight into my daily routine. These moments are often hard to photograph and usually last only a minute or two. I will start sharing them with you in this occasional series.
Within the last two weeks, I have done something with two of my host sisters that has lead to each of them bragging about it with their friends.
First was my youngest sisi’s birthday. She turned 12 and it was her first birthday celebration. I have made a birthday cake for each of my family members of their birthdays. This sisi requested chocolate cake. Additionally my family had a small party for her, eating dinner together at the table and having soda and chips. It was beautiful.
Secondly, my middle sisi was able to attend Bushfire with me thanks to a Swede who could not attend and wanted a Swazi to go in her place. My usually loud sisi was quiet with sensory overload. She had never been somewhere so loud, so crowded, and so expensive. But she got to see Sands perform, a brag-worthy occasion, and then she screamed at me over my photo with Sands, which happened after she had headed home.
