Here in Musoma our spring rains have arrived – hoorah! This means that the weather is much cooler (25C!) and we frequently need to wear jumpers.
Spring rains also mean something else …
Flying termite season!!!
These little guys crawl out of the ground after it rains and like to fly around for a few hours before losing their wings.
Tanzanians like to fry them up for a tasty snack! (I’ve yet to be offered one though …)
The other evening I sat on our kitchen floor, having a lot of fun, taking pictures of all the bugs landing around me! (My house-mate’s cats like to come in and out of the windows … meaning a handy entry point for flying night-time visitors).
Maybe one day I’ll be brave enough to actually try one …
Have you ever enjoyed an unusual snack?!
