First Morning at Homestead

Woke up to an orchestra of roosters crowing, dogs barking and cows

Bucket bathing isn't as difficult as expected, although nothing beats a hot shower.

Pigg's Peak shopping, the first real full blown African culture experience. This is the biggest town I have spent time in since arriving (the town the airport is in is much bigger but we were bused out of there right away)

I only saw one American item, which was a Head & Shoulders bottle of Shampoo which I was buying.

ATM and credit card worked like a charm.

Typing this by oil light, seriously, the design of the lamp is like you see in movies taking place in 1800's

Get SiSwati name Sibusiso Mazbuko, which means "Blessed" and then my surname, which is the family name of the homestead I am staying at
