Cheesing in Botswana
Reporting in from Gaborone, Botswana: Within 24 hours of arrival, Madame Fromage found her fix. Here is Yours Truly in Woolworth’s — believe it! — before a vast selection of pre-packed dairy.
Many of these are imports, obviously, but my mother (also a cheese sleuth) picked up some local Cheddar and cream cheese, both made in South Africa. If time allows, we will sniff out some cheesemakers in Cape Town. Otherwise, word has it that there’s a dairy just outside Gaborone. Perhaps we will host a cheese party at our new flat in The Village (pictures forthcoming). First, we’ll need to learn to drive our stick shift rental car on the left side of the road. And avoid hitting goats.
That’s today’s project.
