Cultural Food Fest

Today we all feasted on a wide variety of Namibian fare at the Community Center [which is also our training center].  Host families worked hard to prepare food in the traditional ways, on open fires and hardwood BBQs.  I had another mopane worm and it was better than the one I had in Windhoek last week.  It was firm and chewy tasting a bit like liver, while the first one was dry, crunchy and tasty as gravel.
