Survival Africa Candle Cooking Ouidoh Benin Saturday, September 9, 2006
I was reading in the LP about the fishermen here in Benin, throwing tree branches will leaves in the water, then allowing them to rot. When the rotted, I guess the fish would be attracted, they would then net them. Ingenious way of getting them in one location, I always have my eyes open for a very small net, however yet to find one light and easy.
This makes me think though about tagging or grouping certain types of post. The electricity in Ouidah has been off out for about six hours, I am hungry, want to cook some Peas. Finally mustered up a four-candle oven, first for a cup of coffee, now for the peas. Works great, and as long as inside, no breeze, easy to use.
I am having lemons and peas for supper, not much, but better than eating Pringles, or candies that are easy to buy.
I am sort of scavenger, hit many food groups over the course of the day.
