It’s been a fun past three months for me on Instagram. In case you don’t follow me there, today I’d like to share some highlights from my Instagram gallery from that period. In this post, you’ll see 33 of my most liked Instagram pictures and videos from the last three months. They include sunset pictures, pictures of delicious and interesting food, as well as pictures of some great books I’ve read recently. I hope you enjoy them. With no further ado, here they are. 33.

Ok, let’s get a little visual again. Over the past month or so, my Instagram gallery has taken my followers on a journey through Lake Mburo National Park in western Uganda; eating and socializing in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania; and on a road trip to the ruins of the ancient sultanate of Kilwa, off the southern coast of mainland Tanzania, crossing the Rufiji river which I had heard so much about but had never seen. With no further ado, here are some of my followers’ favorite pictures since my last Instagram roundup post. I hope you like them too!
Two months ago, I had the pleasure of visiting Botswana for the first time. Not the Okavango Delta or Chobe National Park (the big safari destinations in Botswana) but rather the capital of Botswana, Gaborone.

On the appointed day, I hopped onto a Fastjet flight to Johannesburg (I would connect to Gaborone … Continue reading Botswana: A Guide to Gaborone, the Capital of Botswana
Imagine this: It’s a lazy Saturday after a very long week, and all you want to do is stay home in front of some good TV. You settle down on your couch, under some comfortable covers, and start to surf the channels for something good to watch. You finally find it and settle in for a cozy night at home filled with marathon TV watching. An hour or two in, your stomach begins to grumble. You mentally start going through what you’ve got in the fridge. Come to think of it, there’s not much to eat unless you’re going to … Continue reading Hellofood & TV1 Present #StayAtHomeTZ
Happy Friday! I hope your work week ended well and that you are all set to have a rocking weekend! Now that we’ve had that break I promised, it’s time to get back to our series. This week, I’d like to know more about buying groceries in your city.
As I mentioned in Baked Beans—Delightfully Good!, my love for baked beans started way back when I was in nursery school. My feelings for beans in general, though, were not nearly as positive. In primary school, when my family had moved back to Africa from the US, I remember clearly the days when my brother and I would come home to find beans on the lunch table. Those lunch times invariably ended the same way: with my brother and I on our knees with our arms up in the air (my parents’ favorite punishment at the time) for as long … Continue reading Beans for Your Health
Excuse me, readers, but all the talk of baked beans with a recipe containing corned beef, has me thinking of yet another canned classic. This time, I’ve got corned beef on my mind.
