Sawubona, I See You is a memoir by Daniel Stantus narrating his experiences as a former Peace Corps Volunteer in the early 1970s in Swaziland, Africa. The book contains six short stories based on his own life experiences in the exotic, wild, and untamed locales of the kingdom of Swaziland, now better known as Eswatini. Daniel regales readers with personal anecdotes of how he traversed some of the most remote and unknown regions of Southern Africa, mingled with the local populace, and sought to understand an unfamiliar yet rich and vibrant culture. These humorous tales include trying to build a sanitary toilet, unwittingly becoming the sports master of a high school without any prior experience, being skeptical about witchcraft and then having to doublethink, and much more.
Brace yourselves for a tour of Swaziland in the early 1970s, where a Peace Corps Volunteer recounts his days of wonder and amazement, serving a country and people rich in culture and history. Author Daniel Stantus's invigorating personal anecdotes about trying to embrace a culture and landscape so different from his own strike a chord in your heart and keep you engaged from the get-go. The stories are riveting, giving outsiders a rare glimpse of a land full of vibrant people with their own unique heritage and lifestyles. Stantus infuses humor and warmth into each story to make them feel authentic and thoroughly entertaining to read. I had a wonderful time reading Sawubona, I See You. Highly recommended.
