Rwandan Food: Akabenzi


Akabenzi is a fried pork dish, so called because the snout of a pig resembles the Mercedes Benz logo. Aka is a diminutive prefix, so all together akabenzi means little Benz.*

Beginning my second year

School ended in late October and began again last week. I've decided to teach the same grades as I taught last year so that I'll be teaching at a level I've had experience with. So far, the new students are promising and seem to be comprehending better than last years' students. Maybe they aren't as intimidated since they've known about the American teacher for a year or maybe my instructions are clearer. Either way, I think this will be a good school year.
