Each Sunday we have the Fruit and Veg market which is located quite close to the Compound.We first visited there on our first full day in Mwanza
This is a good place to stock up on fresh produce and we often go on a Sunday afternoon to pick up some bargains. We are probably charged Mzungu prices, but a smattering of Kiswahili helps and the prices are really not too bad. Of course it isn’t just Fruit and Veg – there are other stalls too!
Onions, Potatoes, Tomatoes and Peppers
Mangoes and Peppers
Cabbages, Mangoes and Tomatoes
Vegetables of all
Pots and Bottles
Bowls and Brushes
T-Shirts and Pots

Each year I start playing Christmas Music from the start of December.
Each day until Christmas (in addition to my other posts) I will post a link to a video of one of the Christmas tunes on my iPod. Some will be carols, others pop songs. Here is my 7th offering:
Nichole Nordeman: Real
I bought this on an album last year, but for some reason I never heard it before this year. When I did I was amazed, such a hauntingly beautiful song, sung by a voice I didn’t know. Not a classic, definitely new but a firm favorite.
If you go to a Nativity this year think about this song and think!
