On hospitality in Africa

Digression….so I’ve been on a bit of a blogging slow-go. Combination of work, tinkering with ideas for Mzalendo, and bloggers block/ geek-depression because my Mac crashed while I was trying to do some sql-related stuff and got cute. Hopefully my mojo will be back sooner rather than later.

In the meantime, I came across this wonderful story in the CSM. It reminded me of the hospitality that one experiences in Africa, it’s often humbling (you know when you show up at someone’s house, and they are hardly able to put food on the table but they slaughter a ka-chicken for you because you are a “special” guest from so far…can’t put a price on that) especially after spending time in the West where being offered chips and dip is about the max extent of feeding you will receive if you show up in someone’s digz (OK, I’m exaggerating but y’all know what I’m saying).

Shameless plug

    Hongera on the businessweek Mention.
    It is :sad: how we loss our hospitality heart when we move to the west but the ka-chicken is priceless.

  • Congratulations!

  • Hhhhhmmmmmm….Business Week 😯


    Keep up the good work !

  • Its amazing that we still have some hospitality left in Africa.This ,perhaps explains a bit why we are the original human beings. For how long and how we are going to sustain it,is my ugly big question.There are new rats in the lower drawers..I am watching.

    Hey gal,
    First congrats on the Business Week mention, do we have enough material for the memoirs yet?
    I love what you have been doing with Mzalendo, keep up the excellent work and spirit. Give me a holla next time you drop by. God blees you. 😛

  • s say you have a site offering a service or product in the travel
    market. Creating a website to show potential clients what type of advertising services they can purchase is a solid business move, according to “Entrepreneur Magazine. Newspapers, for example, are printed and sold on a daily basis.
