heritage day {outside the box}

Yesterday we “celebrated” Heritage Day. Every S. African I asked didn’t really have an answer for what you do or celebrate on Heritage Day. Wikipedia says this, “Heritage Day, 24 September, is a public holiday on which South Africans across the spectrum are encouraged to celebrate their cultural heritage and the diversity of their beliefs and traditions, in the wider context of a nation that belongs to all its people.” We encouraged our African friends that next year we must plan some kind of proper celebration.

A holiday is a holiday so we decided to celebrate, even if it might have been a little out of the box. Our newest staff member here just happens to be a sushi chef. Jealous? You should be. Even though there was no raw fish to be found anywhere in our area (they are out until tomorrow), we still made some amazing sushi. I now know the proper way to roll sushi so it doesn’t “explode” when you slice it.

It was totally amazing. I didn’t want to stop eating but my tummy couldn’t hold anymore. How was your Monday?

    Ooh, we love sushi here! I've never made it with the rice on the outside, though. Will have to give that a try. 🙂
