Come into my house...

Sawubona, Unjani? (= Hello, How are you?) in Zulu language...

My name is Themba, do you like to visit my house, here in Soweto?



This is my house...



And this is my father and grandfather, we all live together with my mom and my bigger brother.



This is where we get the water for our cooking, drinking and washing up....



We boil the water first for tea or coffee...



Our favorite meal is Pap with gravy or tomato sauce....



After dinner we have to do the dishes...



Hope you liked the tour around the house!

Hamba Kahle = Goodbye!

Really cool post, so interesting to see how people live in other cultures.

What a beautiful little girl! And it seems like she's got a great family, too. How nice of these people to open up their home to you. They must be good friends.

Beautiful Themba and beautiful family. How we could all learn to live with much less material things that clutter our lives and still smile as joyfully as her father does.

We didn't know these people at all, but they were so friendly. It amazes me all the time how hospitable and open they are!!
