On our last night in Namwianga we were served potjie (poi-key) which, according to Sue & Rod,  means "little pot". According to Wikipedia,  a potjie is a social activity, with guests generally engaging in fireside chitchat while the potjie cooks, typically three to six hours.  We were certainly social throughout the afternoon.  Our potjie was actually a stew made in a large dutch oven over an open fire for most of the day.  Sue included "beef", pumpkin, miniature ears of corn, carrots and spices. After we ate Rod told us the beef was wildebeest! Delicious! I had two helpings plus homemade shortbread.  Great food!
