eating: rice and beans.
missing: dark chocolate (any chocolate!)
learning: ‘African babies do not cry’ is a myth – at least according to the baby next door!
making: passionfruit curd, mousse, ice blocks, slice – our vines are prolific!
thinking about: how stress manifests. Neither of us feel particularly stressed but we are both displaying the sleep behaviours (talking/walking) that normally accompany strain for us.
feeling: hungry. Is it because crossing cultures takes so much energy? Or because our (basically vegetarian) diet has less protein?
listening: for rogue mossies inside the mosquito net.
smelling: body odour – and not being bothered by it!
wanting: green bags – way too much plastic here!
hoping: to make Tanzanian friends.
weirded out by: the tomato sauce here. I thought Australian tomato sauce was loaded with preservatives and sugar until I saw the PINK Tanzanian stuff!
promising: to teach our language tutor how to do a Tim Tam Slam.
