You Know You’re in Swazi When…

These are a few funny things to give you a better picture of my life in Swazi… 🙂

Being called “fat” is a compliment.

Your nickname becomes “Blue Eyes” because blue eyes are so rare.

“Ngisha dile” (I am married) becomes a regular part of speech so guys will stop proposing.

A wild cat in the house (who likes to sift through the kitchen garbage) is the least of your worries…

Electricity goes out for a night or a weekend…and you spend time with one another talking over candle light.

School is canceled because there’s no water.

People know you are American by the pace of your walk.

All over town, you see people with umbrellas…not to block the rain, but to block the sun’s heat.
