A Shot of Everyday Life in Manzini

Everyday we leave our homes to go to work, to go do some shopping, to meet up with friends for a coffee or a meal. For some, going to town is a big event which is enjoyed for its pleasure. For others, it may be an everyday occurrence that they have grown accustomed to.

Whatever the reason for the trip to town, people go about their business: walking, driving, and even sitting down to watch the passers-by.

On my trip to Manzini in Swaziland, I enjoyed watching people go about their everyday life: selling food at the fruit and vegetable stalls, walking to work, doing their shopping, or even enjoying their day in town.

    1. You are not. Even the business in the town is different: people still have time to be friendly, to spend time with passersby, and to stroll through the streets. The people themselves seem more content, even though they do not have as much material goods as in the developed countries.

    1. I have found Swaziland to be similar to many small South African towns. Especially now that many South African franchises are appearing: the chain stores like Woolworths, and the eateries such as Debonairs.
