Pigs and Kudus

Yesterday we killed Lulu our pig. Do you like Lulu’s name? First you bonk her on the head so that she’s unconscious and cut the neck about half way. I don’t know how the guy did it… it’s such a horrid job!  And the neck makes a noise of air trying to get out.

It was such a big job cutting it all up... sometimes we had to use dad's metal saw! But we found the bladder (which we use as a football) and had the tail cut off (because in our book they roast it but I don't know what it tastes like at all!) and looked at all the insides like the entestines and the heart, livers and lungs, and lots of other bits.  I realy liked the heart which was intresting with all the viens. We have four big legs and lots of pork chops and bits of meat. Louisa and I were carrying all the sufaria's (pots) up to the house which were overflowing with meat. When it was all done and all the meat was in the kitchen Mum started sorting it all and cutting the meat and she was all bloody and slimy so I had to cook lunch. I heated up coliflower soup which was what we had for dinner the night before and heated up the biscuits to go with it!
Lulu's heart

In our last week in Magozi, we went to for lunch with our friends. The evangelist's wife had cooked us Tandala which in English is Kudu, like a sort of gazzele which is grey-brown and with white sripes. It tasted a bit like moose. People in magozi eat all kinds of animals like elephant, kudu, dikdik but said that baboons didn't have much meat on! When we go to Magozi we always look out for animals. We often see baboons and sometimes dikdiks and once we saw a kudu. I love dikdiks (but not to eat!)

Last weekend we had the Dixon family to stay. We had fun playing with Elia and Finley. Elia slept in the bunk beds with me. We had wraps for tea with them one day and cinnamon buns for brunch after church on Sunday. We went out for coffee at Neema with them and had carrot cake!

  1. Poor Lulu - all chopped up and a part of her turned into a football. Will there be any chops left by the time we come to visit next year? Actually we are very proud of you both in all the things you do. Now we will have to think of lots of adventures to give you in England. Lots of love, Granddad & Grandma. XX
