Get to know the locals. People in Swaziland have a well-earned reputation for being friendly and helpful. So you expect to hear "Hello Mom" and "Hello Sister" when you are down the street. Hello people in sowbona – hello and yabo in reply. It may not be spoken Swazi, but at least it shows that you are not a complete tourist.
Swazis take, not tell. When I asked Szombuzo Mahlambi, a postal worker where I could buy a postcard, he locked his cashbox and turned me halfway. When we left, his co-workers were not even looking. Enroute he bypassed, so I would know where to find a shop specializing in local arts and crafts. As we walked along, I had to squeeze a smile. In Western countries, civil servants may be disciplined and / or dismissed for leaving their jobs. Guides were also sent to show me where to find a taxi, post office and internet cafe.
Buy emaiad at Mr. Cheap Fabric Center. Go to Shop # 3 on Guamile Street for a good selection of cotton emayadi paintings. This two-meter-long cotton fabric has a pattern that sixty feet shouts "Swazin." The first time I saw a man wearing traditional clothes, I asked where I could get the wrap. Although she was going for a woman in uniform, she went to the store with me. It was fine and neat, but I could barely convince the servants that I really preferred the traditional imaiad to the one with the King of Swaziland photo.
Drink beer in the Moonlight bar. Ask for a local beer in this Swazi Plaza inn, and JJ will tell you what Sibeb is called by the name of a mountain not far from Mbabayan. The only place this place has an environment and a positive attitude. Clients include teachers, drug dealers, working girls, construction site boys and farmers. Per the available bar chair and the person next to you sownona.
Take a look at what is being offered at Ligomba Lemasusagi. The official address is located in Swazi Plaza's Edward Building 4th Store. But if you can't find it, don't worry. Just ask someone, and the likelihood is that you'll be handed the front door. If you're not sure what you can get, ask Fiso who runs the place to make some suggestions. This could be your one-way souvenir shopping.
Hang on Liberty Square. Drag a piece of garden bench in the corner of Somhololo and Guam. This is where the real Swazi people hang out. Friends visiting; guys coming out of the plastic bag-covered bottles. people reading newspapers; breastfeeding mothers. The shade of one of the many large trees is an ideal place for an hour or a few hours away from viewing devices.
Hop on the comb and swim like a local. These 14-seat vans trade on different routes. In the middle of the city the bus rank is sunken, which is mandatory. Looking down, it literally combines white tiled seaside. How they are manipulated and actually inside is really a form of art. Buses, people, street vendors, fruit vendors all add to the general chaos. The area has its vibratory rhythm and people dance to it.
