African meal etiquette
In many parts of Africa,food tables and chairs do not make knives and forks,not chopsticks,but the hand pilaf.
Dinner,everyone sitting around the circle,a lunch box and a food box in the middle.Each person holding down the left hand edge of box lunch or a dish with the right hand grasping his fingers in front of rice and vegetables,into the mouth.At this point,you will know what to do,or even hand-dip full grasp of rice,while the Africans themselves pilaf,dinner everybody moves cleanly.Dinner guests should be noted that,not to food scattered on the ground,which is the owner of the taboo.Meal complete,the elderly are not left,the younger generation want to sit to wait; the children left,it must salute to thank the parents; guests after eating a host should be such as to leave.
Many places in Africa,dinner with the strict etiquette,and even cattle and sheep chickens and ducks to eat every part of who should have provided.Such as in Mali,chicken thigh length of men then ate the chicken breast meat,owned by older women,to eat;-headed people to eat chicken neck,stomach and liver; chicken's head,claws and wings from the children eating.Another example in Botswana,a large banquet in the public,guests,and a man to eat beef,married women to eat chop suey,the two separate cooking,separate meals,not confusion.With the township into the vulgar,to be suitable to understand.
Tippi,a little girl from French,is the protagonist of the photographic collection—“My Wild Animal Friends”.Since she was borned in 1990,she had followed her parents all the time and was grown up in Africa Bush.
Just as she said she was an agrestal girl.She lived together with animals and made friends with them.Such as ostrich,lion,leopard ,chameleon and baboon.She called the Elephant elder brother,used eyes to communicate,danced withthe ostrich and went on a blind date with elephant and especially kiss to snakes.When she was 3,she meet a baboon and make friends with it ,which she called Sindy(星迪).
These animals brought her flesh bitterness but gave her more pleasure,happiness,excite,and fantasy.Ultimately all animals became her friends.
When aged 10,she come back to her hometown—Paris.With the help of her parents,she compiled her whole experience to be the photographic collections—“My Animal Friends”.She intended to arouse people the awareness to protect natural.
However her story was suspected by many net friends.Her innocence,her goodness and her lovliness was considered to be hypocritical.It was said that these animals she contacted with was captive.
Regardless of its authenticity.In my opinion “My Wild Animal Friends” is a good book to us people.Now “Man and Nature” has been the globalization topic.In the intercourse of natural,we have necessity to review what we had done.We should protect the natural.After all,we all are the son of the earth.It is the earth who gestates us.
