Goodies from South Africa

I have just got back from a great trip to South Africa, my first time there! I was there with five of my colleagues from Leicester. We did twelve presentations and workshops at UNISA – South Africa’s major distance educational provider – they have around 350, 000 students! We didn’t have much time to explore, but we did manage to get to a lovely market on the Sunday, called Rosebank. I was impressed by how clean and modern everything was and the people were really lovely. I bought a number of things including some South African music (Vusi Mahlascla – Naledi Ya Tsela and Miriam Makeba – The unforgettable) – great, great music! I also got some cute salad serving spoons with giraffes on 😉 and two cookery books. Looking forward to trying out the recipes. Paul our host also gave me a tin of the famous Chakalaka – it’s a kind of mild vegetable curry – delicious! So overall a good trip both personally and professionally. Hope next time I get more of a chance to see the country!
