Today after a VERY early morning of SHARP training for me I went to Gugletu a township of Cape Town to enjoy a Saturday afternoon of drinking, eating, and watching soccer and rubgy. My friend Ellie's roommate Funeka invited us to join her and her friends to this weekly event. Mzoli's is a little place that hosts neighborhood people to come watch the soccer and rugby games which are projected onto a large screen under a large tent. There is a meat market that you go in and select your meats and order your sides and they cook it all in a smokehouse and bring it on a platter to your table. You buy your bread and drinks from separte little shops in the area. The food was AMAZING and tasted a lot like the texas bbq i miss so much. We ate with our hands and cleaned up by licking our fingers and using white bread to clean our mouths. We brought our No Name wine from Pick n Pay and also drank some more Savannah Ciders which they should export to the US soon! It was a great long afternoon and early evening and it was my first real taste (pardon the pun) of South African life.
