A Monkey’s Wedding
Category : Life in South Africa
So…being from the Midwest it’s a very strange kind of day. It’s raining and sunshine all at the same time! Come to find out that’s very common here and is referred to as a “Monkey’s Wedding.” In all my research, about 10 minutes worth, no one knows how the expression came to be, buy every South African knows what it means. It has Zulu origins and quite literally translates as the “wedding of a monkey.” The cool thing about Monkey’s Wedding-type days is that there is almost a brilliant rainbow throughout the day.
Random post, I know, but I told you it was a weird kind of day…
