Imagine living on maize and beans as your main diet. At this school and at other schools, this was the main dish. For breakfast they had tea… and bread if any money. They bought bread in the weekend and then kept it all week.
I ate about half the plate, we had another lunch in the grass as well. One of the people travelling with me said, “Stop…” then she took out a maize/corn piece and I asked “What?” “Weavel” she said. The others laughed, it was an insect as a bug that had laid eggs inside the maize. Proteins they said, but perhaps I would not like it?
I asked one our group if they also had gone to such school in their teens? Not this nice she said, less fancy.
I just cant forget all these memories that I have had.
