Nhlangano Day #2

My first hot shower in several weeks, remember I have been bucket bathing and living in place with no power. SO AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Meet up with Dennis to get a walking tour of the city, Timbakosi joins us for what turns into a driving tour. They show all the shops, bars, resturants, government offices which I will be working in & visiting over the next 2 yrs.

Timbakosi is the regional director for SNYC (Swaziland National Youth Council), Swaziland & the PC really love the acronyms

Believe it or not there is actually a bar inside a prison that is open to the public, very strange, needless to say it is the safest bar in town to drink in.

We go 10 miles outside of town to see what is supposed to be my permanent site. There is no key so I can't go in, basically there are several improvements that need to be made to make it Peace Corp standard. So begins the housing drama, stay tuned.

I could see South Africa from the front door.

Eat Brio (said like Bra as in Bra - there) which is where you buy your meat raw and then cook it yourself at the resturant, very good
