Not Today, Satan!

Quick photo blog of my African Voyage:
On my birthday!
I celebrated a birthday just before heading back States side. This was first thing in the morning.I took front and back angles of this photo. If I show you the back side, I'd have to kill ya. And I love you too much!

Would've been nice to be with the rest of the family during this special time, moreso on my mom's birthday, but
Birthday outfit! Turquoise like the ocean water we were at.

My sis took me to the beach, we had a major photoshoot out there. It was so fun! I love all the photos!

That's us!
Apparently, I got a lot of stares what with my jorts (jean shorts) aka short shorts. They're not even THAT short! Not as short as the first photo, haha! They're rolled up in that one!. It's just that South Africa is conservative like that. At least the black South African community. So to speak.

Wearing a bathing suit for the first time since the naked photoshoot.
Remember that photoshoot? Click here for a refresher.

Some of the food from Durban

I eat a lot of protein as you may be aware, check out my food log on instagram here for inspiration.
Chicken livers, hearts, the works. All so good. Indian fusion

I did a lot of walking and physical work. I was doing renovations, after all.

Going for a walk in the white T and rainy day in the Converses

Note to self:L Buy rain boots!

Working! Hands peeling!

Don't feel bad for me, I loved every minute of it. It was kinda therapeutic being away from my lovely hubby, Calvin! 

Going down memory lane, means touching on the not so easy parts as well. 

Eating Durban Curry. Runny nose and all lol.

What's your favorite cuisine?

Out and about and lounging at home after homemade ice cream

The thing about being around my sister, Pumla, is that, she's a maverick in the kitchen! Who has an entire fridge filled with homemade ice cream and doesn't even eat it?

Sitting in my closet lol. That was my chair in Durban. 

I made that floppy beanie myself. That was my first time wearing to my birthday gift from Pru, my sister. She took me to the Cheetah place in Cape Town. We hung around Cheetahs and other wild cats. It was so special! We had a blast! I'll show you those pics when I can find them. 

The garage and working so hard, I sweat

The garage that someone quoted me hundreds of Rand (South African currency), to clean for me. It literally is empty and took me minutes to clean. Nah, thanks boo! People be trying to make dollars out of you when you're live in America. That's why I just do things myself and then pay myself... generously! sorry! Not sorry!

Mud houses and views along the Transkei / KwaZulu Natal Route

Have you ever lived in a mud house? I hear they are really cool in the summer. I suppose cold in winter!

Last moments with family. Sad to say goodbye to my room and to my loved ones

One took me to the airport, one stayed behind. The goodbye was hard. I called mom just before I left the house because I was going to leave my SIM card behind, it still had credit in it and I was going to be able to use it in The States. 

Cape Town International in front of Nelson Mandela Statue And Airplane Food

There was a guy at the airport, who came and sat right next to me. The airport was empty and dude wants to sit hip to hip with me! What the eff? Suspicious! Next thing, he left his bag next to me. I'm like, this dude got me fcked up, if he thinks I'm about to get in trouble with his stuffed back pack. I got up pronto and started walking around. When I sat back down, he tried chatting me up. Nah, boo! I kept that convo short as heck. The hair on the back of my neck was already all the way up! We were not going to be friends. Not today, Satan!

The food was edible. I ate everything but the carby stuff, i.e. rice, bun, crackers.

Aaaand we're off!
