Burundi and its capital Bujumbura are a little forgotten on the map. Among tourists, it receives little attention. The country offers culinary highlights in Africa. The question is: why can not you cook like that everywhere?
My favorite minister is angry.
"Three days in Burundi only? Not with me! There is a limit! You will stay longer and get a free tour of the country. And then you tell everyone how beautiful Burundi is. "
Where do you get picked up by the Minister of Tourism, taken in at home and in your family and live in the lap of luxury? Where to sunbathe on the Caribbean beach, in the middle of Africa? Where do you greet the hippos not far from the capital?
The last sip of the Italian 1994 red wine joins the exquisite Pennes aux quatre fromages that fill my stomach up to the top along with the Crevettes d'avocado and the sweet lady noire. The Minister of Tourism in Burundi settles the bill, and with a last look over the nocturnal Lake Tanganyika we get into his Land Rover. Back home. What a day!
