When Dad showed me the latest picture of the Friends of NeverSeconds kitchen in Lirangwe I starting jumping for joy!
Have you seen how big it is? It looks almost ready to start being used. The children are on school holidays but are back very soon. You can see the shelter for cooking that they use at the moment on the right. Malawi has a rainy season that starts in December. I am glad we are not visiting in the rainy season. I think the new kitchen will make cooking easier than the old one if it rains. I can't believe I will be putting the sign up on the kitchen soon. We fly in just 19 days now and I am a bit nervous. It will be World Porridge day on October 10th and I would like to take some Scottish porridge to cook for the children in Malawi to celebrate. If you send me an email, firstname.lastname@example.org , of your porridge I will post it on the blog from Malawi! That will be cool.
I am making a photo album of home, and school and my friends to take with me. I will put in it photos from the blog too. Here's one of my apple trees I planted 4 years ago. It has a wire cage around it to stop wild deer rubbing their antlers against the tree and killing it. Don't the apples look great!
I don't think Malawi has apple trees but that is another question for my notebook. I am sure there are apple trees in Nova Scotia where Jagej lives. I think I would like to visit Jagej and share some Mi'kmaq foods. I like venison and crabs but you have to be strong to break into a crab to eat it. Their shells are hard. Thank you Jagej for sharing your traditions and showing us the way you respect everything.
Next week we are going to Tokyo, Japan (12 seconds!). It will all be very different again. I couldn't find ingredients for a South Korean meal so I hope I can find some Japanese ingredients for next week!
