Sugar cane corner

The random patch of trees that I walk by on the way to work where there is always a mysterious deposit of sugar cane for the taking.
The Life of a Muzungu in Lundazi

June 29th 2010
A true adventurer I am not. Though I love the experience of living in new places it is not the thrill of discovery that keeps me coming back, but the feeling of comfort that comes with having settled in a foreign environment.

Nice blog
Hey there - just saw your blog after doing some random surfing on Lundazi. We just missed each other. I lived there with my girlfriend (wife in Lundazi!) until June 2010. We had a lot of fun and miss it a lot - as I am sure you do to. If you are interested I wrote a blog too - not as good as yours becuase I was under pressure to write about development themes... I should have just stuck to describing what life was like - that is enough about development for most people. Betty worked for Thandizani - just next to sugar cane corner. We walked past there everyday for almost 2 years and I sometimes saw people selling sugar cane there (I bought one once) but never unnattended! Did you ever get to the bottom of that? Anyway - thanks for giving me a bit of nostalgia... hope you had a good time in Lundazi, it seems like you did. John

Much delayed response from a muzungu
Hi John, So this response is about a year overdue. I am just reviving my travelblog as I have returned to Bangladesh. And so glad to share the love of Lundazi a little bit. I was there two summers and was so happy. Alas because of drama and heartbreak I should probably never go back, but I hope that others can enjoy all of it's quiet beauty (and sugarcane). Happy travels! Libby
