This place is called House of Fire. It is SO interesting!
The artwork and carvings were VERY different!!
They have weddings and special events here including
A gift shop in the same area
Gorgeous view through the garden path...
Just one of MANY fun benches to sit on...
It is in a really beautiful setting!
I liked this inscription.... "God is Love" Ü
Cool windows! (I LOVE 💗 hearts!)
Another fun bench made of stone
More interesting art pieces...
This place had the most interesting chandeliers!!
It was like an amphitheater.
I decided to stop at the restroom ("toilet" here) before we left
and am I ever GLAD I did! This was the most colorful restroom
I have ever seen in my life!!!
We drove on to the Swazi Candle Factory and the shops
around there and passed these pretty jacarandas lining the road!
This is a very agricultural area with lots of crops planted,
a jam and jelly factory and more pretty scenery!
This tree is seen all over. It has BRIGHT fiery red
blossoms, but the color doesn't really show up here.
I LOVE Swaziland's many different pretty trees!!
There was an outdoor craft market there with really
This cute guy really wanted us to buy one of his giraffes.
They were NICE! He learned to make them from his father
and is now teaching his 16 year old brother the craft. He
called himself "The Young Artist". He's 23 and very talented!
This candle factory was an amazing place!! We
just bought a small candle for our table. There were
so many different shapes and kinds and
they were ALL BEAUTIFULLY made!!
These were all animal shapes and very colorful!
These were mostly round or square and had animal
prints and designs.
One of the candlemakers at work in the back room....
These were the coolest animals ones with patterns
the actual colors you see on the animals.
We really enjoyed the fun shops!!
This cute guy in Swazi dress said I could take his
picture and he wouldn't even charge us because
we're Christians. Ü
We ate lunch at Sembane's Coffee Shop there by the craft
market. Bob ordered the chicken curry with rice and I got
the roasted chicken salad with avocado and cashew. They
were both yummy!! We also got the lemon and the
strawberry smoothie. Ü
Oh what a beautiful place! The photo above is
of pineapples growing.
More beauty on the way to Mbabane...
These photos just do NOT do it justice!!
We met Nathi at the Mbabane Chapel and as we were
pulling out, this cute little family headed into the pretty
Mosque across the street. Muslims are just 10% of the
population of Swaziland. It is 40% Zionists, 20% Roman
Catholic, and 30% Methodist, Anglican, Mormons and Jews.
The pretty city of Mbabane through the trees and bushes.
