Here's an interesting bit of trivia - a weaver bird's nest hanging in the pergola housing the braai. These things are all over the place in Namibia - single trees can be festooned with the nests. The interesting thing is that most of them are uninhabited. The male weaver bird runs around collecting material to make a nest, which is then inspected by the female weaver bird. If it doesn't pass muster, he gets the flick and must build a new nest and try to impress the same bird or a new one. If the female bird likes it, then they hook up and she moves in. Kind of like humans, really.
|The oryx steaks are the ones on top|
We enjoyed a range of meats, including boerwors, bratwurst, oryx and kudu steaks! The oryx was the highlight - tender and juicy. All washed down with delicious South African sparking - Nederburg Methode Traditionelle. Dry with nice mousse, a tinge of fruit, not too much yeast, with a refreshing crisp finish.
|Tastes just like mustard to me ...|
