Grinding Grain



Corn remains a significant part of the diet for many in Africa. The corn is ground into meal, and then used to make Ugali, sort of like American grits. Ugali and Cabbage is what many people survive on. The woman in this picture is grinding the corn to make the meal by hand.

  3. It is probably the hardest work in the world - hard on your knees, your back and your arms.

  4. I am glad I don't have to grind corn for my next meal. In fact, I am glad I don't currently have to worry about where my next meal is coming from. So lucky to live here.

    Have to wonder how long that condition will continue to exist given the current ineptitude of our so called leaders!

  5. Not exactly the best tasting as well. With the clay from the grinding table mixing in with the meal.
