Tuesday – Wednesday – We go to lunch and other things

On Tuesday we were invited to have lunch with sister Renny Motha at a restaurant we did not even know existed. It was a wonderful experience to sit and talk to this lovely sister and enjoy some good food. We are going to miss her and the other members of the branch.IMG_1507_2 IMG_1508_2

On Wednesday we invited the elders to go to lunch with us at Largos – a street food restaurant in Ikageng that we have not been to in a long time. It turned out that elder Wild did not know about Largos and the big meals you can get for about 25R – which comes out to about $1.65 US. Since he was on an exchange with elder Khwela we had a chance to get know him a little better. Elder Wild went for the half loaf sandwich which is a half loaf of white bread stuffed with good things to eat – and he ate it all. This brought on a discussion of foods we have had while serving here and which we liked and did not like.

While we were eating some interesting people went by. I could not get a good photo of the two women walking by – one with some long dusters balanced on her head. But a man with two adorable children in a ‘stroller’ was happy to stop and let me take their picture. They did not appear to be wearing their seatbelts.

This morning I looked out in the back yard and saw among the smaller birds was a large hadedah eating the remains of a piece of bread I had left for the birds. I managed to get this good picture of it and its beautiful iridescent wings. Yesterday Tanner Todd posted a photo to his parents and said that it showed chickens roosting in a tree. The original photo was so dark that I thought he was joking about large weaver’s nests but when I did some editing I found it clearly shows that it is full of chickens. It may be how the keep away from predators.IMG_1512_2 081015.chickens in a tree
