We recently came back from an amazingly lovely holiday with family and it reminded me of this Afrikaans idiom: “hond uit ‘n bos gesels”.

Which is exactly what we did! It means that special kind of chatting about nothing in particular, that you can do for hours and hours, usually (and especially in our case) with some terrific food.

Literally translated it means “talking a dog out of a bush” (heaven only knows how that is related), but it is definitely one of those great expressions that can never be fully translated without losing it wonderfully delightful meaning.

More to follow soon…
