Boerewors by ash Boerewors by ash
One for the South Africans on DA. A purely journalistic shot which I tried valiantly to make as aesthetically pleasing as possible.

This is a foodstall at the Notting Hill Carnival in London, and they're selling boerewors, which is a well-known South African sausage (literally 'farmers sausage' in Afrikaans), popular originally amongst the Afrikaners (white South Africans of largely Dutch and French descent) who invented it but now commonly cooked in long uncut spirals on braais (barbeques) all over the country. I interrogated the stallholders and it turned out they're from Zimbabwe, which is of course the country just north of South Africa (you knew that, right). Weird.

Hey ash, I was actually born in Zimbabwe and half my family is from South(ern) Africa... they get together every couple of years to make a ton of boerewors and billtong (sp?) jerky... SO yummy!

Anyway, just thought I'd share that... this is a great pic btw. :) (Smile)

Kinda scary what's going on in that country these days... pretty much all my family and their friends have fled... :( (Sad)
