Or… so far in Africa, I’ve discovered:
-there are a lot more scooters, bikes, motorcycles than cars
-African women carry everything on their heads (and so gracefully too!)
-A parrot can land on the table next to you and other restaurant clients can try to teach it to sing the Marseillaise
-It’s hot. So hot. But also very windy, which makes wearing knee-length dresses risky (risque too!)
-Fresh pineapple tastes nothing like the canned version.
-A beach shack looks much like a beach shack except there might be carved wooden giraffes in it.
-Even though I haven’t ventured much from the hotel, the panorama from my window is still quite interesting.
-I can buy a traditional African dress or carved mask in the hotel, but not toothpaste.
Let’s see what the next day brings!
