VOLUNTEER BLOG IN SWAZILAND: Lazy Sundays in Swaziland – Bethany gets a lie-in

22nd day blog – Sunday lunch

Today was Sunday and the continuation of Linda’s birthday celebrations!  I am very impressed as she has stretched it out for 3 weeks now.  However, Michael has informed me that this is definitely the end!  The plan for the day is a bit Sunday lunch for Linda and some of her friends.
I got up quite late which was nice as I needed to catch up on some sleep. Once showered and dressed I began to help with the set up for the lunch.  The food was more left up to Michael was it was a little more complex than toast!  I was given the task to lay the table and Linda showed me how to make a very posh napkin to go on the table.
Today the weather is extremely hot!  Everyone that came commented on the weather and how unbearable it was.  I have to admit that at any point I could I would go to my room and have the fan on full.  Once everyone had arrived,  I was introduced and everyone was just chatting and laughing.
The food was extremely nice – the beef just fell apart and melted in your mouth. All of the conversations were very funny and the 3 men that were there told some very funny stories about Michael.  The meal was lovely and the Yorkshire puddings were especially amazing!  Everyone wanted more but there wasn’t enough so some funny battles for the last one did break out.
Once everyone had left,  we sat out on the veranda and continued to drink.  I was truly introduced to Africa as I had some Amerula shots.  It is like Baileys but a lot nicer.  It was like drinking caramel!  Linda then challenged me to take a shot without touching the glass.  I was successful and I was very proud as I am the only volunteer to be able to do it!
After more laughs wine, Amerula and eating leftovers it was time for bed.

  1. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. However imagine if you added some great graphics or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this website could definitely be one of the greatest in its field. Terrific blog!
