Nice!! I’ve been curious about ugali ever since I read about it in Barack Obama’s book; thanks for showing us how to make it :-)

OMG Kath! I have been following your recounts of Africa and I am soOo amazed!

Everything just looks so amazing! The food, the tea making process :!: , the people, the culture, the ANIMALS :!: , the climate! one word that I’m feeling the most is A.Maize-ing!

Thomas is so sweet and is a smart guy.

I noticed that a lot of the food I’m seeing so far is similar to Indian cooking; samosa, naan, lentil soup–I love them all!

Continue to enjoy your trip there and look forward to see more!

Thanks for the video! Now that I think about it I think I’ve had ugali in an African cafe here in DC.

What happened to Matt’s sweet post? I had a feeling the ‘rack and caboose’ comment might not go over quite so well….

what an awesome video! it looks really yummy. i’m sure it would be awesome with some sort of stew. i think it’s pretty neat how so many different cultures have variations on the same sort of thing (grits, polenta, ugali, etc). we’re not that different, it seems.

I cannot understand a word that SWEET Thomas man is saying. He is very sweet.. i can’t get over how sweeeeeet he is.

It’s so much appreciated to have videos instead of written directions. Words just never get the point across to me like watching a video. Even though he is very soft spoken, the directions are easily understood. Thanks for the video, this looks delicious!
