What are some of my favorite memories of Africa? The food, of course. I got to eat plenty of food with a lot of it being fresh vegetables. Someone was always on the chopping block at meal times and much of the meals were made with fresh vegetables. We stopped every few days for more supplies. The majority of the meals were cooked by members of the party. The crew leader and the driver did not participate in the cooking of the food. I had primarily ‘picnic style’ meals for the better part of two months. The meals the group fixed weren’t always top flight but we were all so hungry (Africa takes a lot out of you) that there were very little leftovers at the end of the meals. I rarely felt like I ate a ‘bad’ meal in Africa. When my group – Group 3 – was up for the supper, breakfast, lunch cycle the meals were superb. Bordering on internally famous cuisine, actually.
