Botswana Outdoor Seating
My host family's yard was spiffied-up for my host-sister's summer wedding. My host father was the kgosana, or headman, of our village. His eldest daughter's wedding was a celebration that spared no expense or nicety. Family and friends from both near and afar joined in a massive feast and dance that lasted 3 days, including the preparations that led up to the actual ceremony and post-ceremony party.
This is the seating area, constructed just for the occasion; a blend of mud-earth and straw, and canopied by green gardening mesh. It was a cool escape from the hot hot hot sun. These types of benches are commonly found around bases of trees, or surrounding concrete or sand patios.
