Faces of Africa – 30

These young men were seemingly too proud and tough to be in a photo, like the younger students… but secretly one of them loved to be the center of attention. 😉

Children singing at the farewell ceremony of one of the four primary schools we visited in Malawi in April/May 2014. It was heartwarming!

Two women, preparing the traditional nsima porridge at school.

Nsima has become the “staple” food of Malawi, much like bread, rice, pasta or potatoes are in other cultures. Nsima is thick starchy porridge made from corn, cassava, or other starch flour. The nsima porridge is formed into hamburger-size patties by scooping the porridge with a wet wooden spoon and flipping it onto a plate. The patty congeals in contact with the cool wet spoon and plate. Marble size pieces are broken off and rolled into a ball in the palm of the hand with the fingers. A final dimple is pressed into one side of it. It is then dipped in ndiwo (the sauce of vegetables or meat).
