ChileheadEd is Back from Africa
Wow, what a Trip! I still don’t know what time it is, the 7 hour time difference has me all screwed up, if anyone wants to chat at 3 am look for me! Here are a few pictures from the trip, Paris, London, South Africa, Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
I Got the chance to try some cool foods like Kudu, Crocodile, Impala, Hemsbock, Warthog and Ostrich and none of em tasted like chicken!
Although the elusive Nando’s Peri Peril sauce eluded my searching, I did manage to pick up some cool sauces to bring home. I was a little worried about them getting home unbroken in my checked luggage, but they all made it unscathed! It was a little hairy once in Africa (where they allow liquids in your carry on) and I had 8 bottles of Iafrica sauce in my bag. You see they have wires wrapped around the necks of the bottles and I suppose that 8 of them in a bag might look something like a bomb in an x ray! I went under a little closer examination in Zambia!
When I checked my bags for the trip home, I kept waiting for the call to clear the terminal as they checked my bag through, but it never came!
I wound up bringing back:
Mrs Balls Chilli Chutney
Burchell’s Peri Peri
Burchell’s Kali Kali
Elephant Pepper Zambezi Red
Elephant Pepper Baobab Gold
Nando’s Hot Sweet peri peri
