I have found that the easiest and lively subjects to be children and for that, my next project will have images of children all around Katima Mulilo, after all, I reside there now. Bookmark this link amkwa.wordpress.com for updates. Nothing beats a true African look.
Katima Mulilo has been and will always be an experience. One of my highlights however is the food sold at the market, ranging from Fish, Spinach, Millie Meal, Local Household Materials, Nuts, Beans and above all Onions. Out of all the business at the market, most of them are little eat out joints that are controlled by hardworking women, working from the morning hours until 13:00 which is the Lunch hour. The popular meal here is called Muhulo (which in Lozi, I presume, means Vegetables) which is accompanied by the Millie pap and Soup, it is well worth it. Here is a little review on the dish:
First glance, one would think it is cud from a Cattle’s stomach. It has a rich green look to it that makes it look rather uncooked, eating it? It taste like onions and it smells fresh. It is very healthy, because it is a staple food in Katima, it is widely sold and cooked wherever you go. If you’re invited to anyone’s home, chances are that this is on the menu and if so, do not be quick to avoid it. I recommend that you eat it, something new and yet filling cannot be refused. Continue on reading, there is more in-store.
Another aspect of Katima Mulilo is the Zambezi River, now I am not a Landscape Photographer but if one is looking for inspiration, this could serve as a good stop in Namibia. Located through Caprivi region, it is the heart of the people here. One could fish, swim and sit over a beer to have a royal conversation. I gather that if you’re moved by breathtaking sunsets and the breath of fresh air, this is all in you need in one. What is noteworthy, however, is that you do not need to pay, all it would cost you is fuel to get there, you could choose from a variety of hot spots down to Zambia or the other way around to Botswana. Be careful that you do not find yourself swimming in the deep, there are crocodiles and hippos.
There is free access to the river, as long as you do not swim alone, locals around? You are safe.
