Sichikwalula--Sharing Chibwantu

David met with the men under a tree. After class they shared chibwantu, a non-alcoholic beer made from mealie meal and "certain roots of the forest." We Americans refer to this drink as "the brew you chew" because it has chunks of cornmeal in it. The Zambians love chibwantu, but I can't acquire a taste for it and have given up trying.
