Extra blessing with the rain.....

We have had some more rain, and with the rain also the flying white ants are coming... I don't know why they call them "white" ants, because they are brown, but that is what everybody calls them. We have those big termites heaps, when the rain comes, or when it has rained in the night, they fly out in the morning. They are quite big, but when people see them fly, they forget everything and they go and catch them.. I have been woken up sometimes at night, when they come out in the evening, they fly towards the light. We have two security lights at our gate, so there is where they go! And people come out to collect them. Our security dogs don't like those people outside our gate, so they bark and bark.

This is early in the morning, the school truck is coming to pick the children, but they saw the flying ants. They went to the kitchen for some cups and ran around the compound, trying to catch the flying ants. They forgot the school truck completely! I had to stop them, because otherwise they would miss school!

This is their catch, the ants are still alive, they will loose their wings, they put salt on them and fry them.

And this is what the children ate in the evening, after they came home from school, they love them!!! I did try them, but I don't think they are very tasty, and then knowing that they are flying ants, I rather leave them for the children!!!!!
