A Taste of Dar

Ashleigh's in Dar this week sourcing fabrics and visiting our favorite vendors (hi Afsa!) and we thought it would be fun to share a glimpse into the moments (ie snacks) in her day between fabric shopping!

Shopping can be tiring, so it's important to take breaks! Fruit vendors constantly pass through the winding pathways in the market, and there isn't much more refreshing than perfectly ripe papaya with a dash of lime. 





Love mango? You'll love this grab and go preparation! Delicious green mango topped with chili powder and salt, this the perfect sweet, salty, spicy energy boost!









Time for lunch! Dar is on the coast, so fish and seafood are everywhere! For a classic lunch, fried fish with rice and some cabbage and sukuma wiki (collard greens) is a filling and satisfying break (plus it always feels good to sit down!).





Fresh sugar cane with ginger is the best way to wrap up a long day! Sweet, fruity and with a gingery kick -- yum!








WHAT WE'RE WATCHING // The Last Black Man in San Francisco

Go see this! Whether you live in SF or haven't ever set foot there, I promise this story will speak to you. Jimmy is obsessed with a house on Fillmore, the house that his grandfather built and his father lost. As the city changes around him, Jimmy tries to hang onto this piece of history that defines him and his idea of his beloved San Francisco. Change is a powerful tide to resist and this film captures its ebbs and flows beautifully with longing, love and friendship.
