Personal highlights

  1. Mbabane: capital, but not largest city (less than 100,000 people) of Swazilandinfo-icon
  2. Swaziland: a real monarchy and the people seem to feel like a big family
  3. Street food: the real African experience, eating like in Eastern Africa
  4. Two worlds: from the rural countryside to the modern malls in the city
  5. Diseases: the country claims to be malaria-free, but aids is still rampaging
