Tilwane (Animals) of Swaziland πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΏΒ 

I don’t live with tigers, lions, elephants, or even zebras but rather these beautiful animals! πŸ‚πŸ–πŸπŸ“πŸ¦ƒπŸΆπŸ±

Each animal serves a purpose here in Swaziland.

  • Dogs: guards and protects home and homeowners.
  • Cats: chases the rodents away. (Both dogs and cats are not allowed inside the home).
  • Chicken, Pigs, and Goats: Meat! 🍴
  • Cows: = $$$, the more cows you have, the wealthier you are perceived to be. Cows are also used if a man wants to marry. He must pay lobola (bride price in cows) to the brides family. Also dairy and meat 🍴

I've decided to uproot my life and dedicate it to serving in the Peace Corps for 27 months. Yuuuuup, you read that right. God has helped me redefine limitations. A dear friend once told me that, "boxes are for shoes, you never know how great you are until you break out of the box and see what you are really made of!" This blog will chronicle my adventures as a Peace Corps Youth Development Volunteer in the Kingdom of Swaziland! You'll read about my highest of highs compounded with the lowest of lows - raw and unfiltered. Please enjoy the view. :) *The contents of this blog are mine and do not reflect any position of the U.S. government or the Peace Corps.*
