A break to enjoy nature's bounty...

November 2014

There was big excitement in Kampala, Uganda, with the “arrival” of the grasshoppers! They are a delicacy in certain parts of Africa.

"...everyone “flew” out of the house with “buvera” (plastic bags) and began shaking the bushes and trees and grabbing all the grasshoppers that had the misfortune of flying out of their hiding places. Then the work began of preparing them for frying. They taste a bit like fried shrimp but contain a lot of oil -one can only eat a certain amount or suffer the consequences! What excitement there was and what a treat! "
