The weather this weekend was glorious – clear, blue skies and lively waves in the lake. Friends came out both days, and Saturday was an African Cowboy Brunch, which consisted of:
- Fresh mangos and tangerines
- White beans in a spicy tomato sauce
- Canadian-type bacon from the local butcher
- Fried eggs
- Whole wheat toast with wild bee honey
- Lots of Burundi coffee
Then, relaxing on the beach, reading, etc.
