On a rainy day in the town of Zomba

It is rainy season here in Malawi, but I find the cloud formations over the Zomba Plateau to be quite beautiful.  I have not yet been to the top, but will surely write about it on this post when I do.

But only after I got home and looked up some information on this food that I realized it was risky for me eat it without knowing about the danger of cyanide if eaten when raw. I took only a small taste, but will be more careful when being courageous with unknown foods.
