on How To Break a Drought

Join the conversationJoin the conversation


Lovely post! No wonder you are so good at what you do. Years ago, on my first visit to Africa, my first safari lodge was Londolozi where I had the best massage I have ever had!! Was it the location and the state of mind it induced? ~ certainly a huge part of it, and undoubtedly also the skill of the masseuse!


The traditional English way to break a drought involves 22 men or women wearing white going into the middle of a field. Nine then depart leaving two men or women to face the remaining eleven. One man (or woman) then runs up and throws a round leather ball at three sticks which one of the two men or women try to defend with a bigger stick.
When it gets interesting another man then sticks up a finger, the rain dance has been completed and the announcement is made “Rain stopped play”


Excellent writing, I very much enjoyed reading your blog today.
