Adventures in Malawi - Boma at the Malawi/Mozambique Border

Stesi lives in southern Malawi, very close to the Mozambique border, where there is a large Boma, where they pretty much sell EVERYTHING.

Apparently it's illegal to sell coal there (because of pollution)...but that doesn't seem to stop anyone. Here (behind the upside down bicycle) you can see a mound of coal and big bags of coal being sold. It's the main source of heat for cooking.

Hmmmmm...what are they selling? ...a pineapple...aaaannnnndddd...

O, right...rats on a stick of course! Included with fur, teeth, and claws...for your tasting pleasure! Stesi told me that meat is pretty expensive for people, and rats are a cheap source of protein for a lot of people who can't afford other types of protein.

I'm a pretty adventurous eater, but i kinda draw the line at fur.

Heaps of 2 of a kind of course.

This man was selling squares of rice, carrots, and whatever else.

We did try them. They were pretty good.

And, of course, no Boma is complete with BUCKETS! :oD
