Lunch at Sichikwalula

Lunch time.  An outdoor kitchen area was up outside the church building, and the ladies took turns tending the fire and cooking.  This lady is stirring a big pot of nshima with a wooden paddle that resembles a small boat oar.  Nshima is similar to grits, but cooked to the consistency of play-doh.  
 We were served our meal inside the church building--men on one side, women on the other.  The menu was nshima with side dishes of goat and chicken.  There weren't enough plates to go around, so we ate directly from the serving dishes.  No utensils needed--we used our hands.
