We are enjoying our time in the Kingdom of Swaziland. Now it is time for lunch. This is the place.
While eating we can gaze over a pretty lawn, into a valley with pretty mountains behind. Lunch was delicious. But, now there are shops to visit. But mom! First let’s go to the House on Fire.
What?? Go into a house on fire? This means that it is a hot place, or a very popular area. I, Zeb the Duck, was getting worried. Inside the complex is a stage.
Perhaps I, Zeb the Duck, should perform on this stage? Maybe not. This is where future performances are announced.
I did not see a sign for me, so I will not perform here. Soon we went into a nice store that specialized in basketry and woven things. Yes, she did. Baskets? Suitcase packing tomorrow night will not be good. I really like these trees, and look at the unusual plants. They are bent like candy canes.
I, Zeb the Duck, am in the leaves of the plant on the left. Very nice in here. Another store? Let’s enter Swazi Candles.
Oh, I like this place. This man is making a candle.
He stopped to tell us how they are made and show us how the wax is kept warm to shape it. This man is adding more wax to a head to make big hair.
Look at these candles.
We love the safari animal candles. After working on candles with warm wax, the finished candles must be cooled in cold water.
These giraffes are cooling now. Our friendly candle maker has just finished this elephant.
Wow! I love these candles.
Of course we purchased some. They will be so much fun to have at home. I will be reminded of Swaziland every time I see them. It is now time to return to Mozambique for the night. Samson takes us through the city of Manzini.
We really like Swaziland. Everything is so clean. The people we met were all so nice. We even met Samson’s sister today. Almost everybody we talked to spoke English very well, so our trip to the Kingdom of Swaziland was easy and very enjoyable. If you ever want to go to the Kingdom of Swaziland, call Samson at Dug**** travel. We think you will love your visit. We did.
