7 Mission Mbarazi!

Last night my 2 little cousins and I decided that we would go look for mahamri and mbarazi early in the morning. I've been wanting to have it ever since I came back. Furqan's friend said he'll meet him at 8.30 outside Fort Jesus to show us the exact location of where the best kind is sold.

At 7.00 am Maisam came to wake me up, he's only 8. lol. He said 'I woke up at 6.40'. He always prides on waking up early. We decided to go to the cementary with the few minutes we still had. 8.30 and we were still there, Furqan's friend called, and we had to rush to Fort jesus.

As I drove through the narrow alleys of old town, we saw a huge truck heading towards us. With my terrible reverse skills, I tried all sorts of ways to move the car at the total edge of the road. Finally the truck passed but was only an inch away from our car. It was a wanting-to-close my eyes moment.. lol

9.00 a.m still no mbarazi. Furqan and his friend got out and set on foot for mission mbarazi. I saw them go from one shop to another, each time shaking their heads. Finally we decided to let go.. hopefully we plan on getting some tomorrow Inshallah.

(I have a picture of the narow alley somwhere around, Will post it IF I manage to find it)

*The picture (Pigeon peas in coconut sereved with mahamri) is from a book 'A Taste of Zanzibar - chakula kizuri(which means 'good food' in swahili)' by Zarina Jafferji. This Photo's either by Javed Jafferji or Philip Waterman.Page 54.
