Morning everybody[emoji2] So hello from sunny Botswana. We are a neighbouring country to South Africa.We have around 2.3 million people total so we are one of the lowest density countries in the world. We are most well known for diamonds. We provide around 20% + of the worlds rough diamonds. Tourism and Beef are also major exports. Temperatures can hit 115 fahrenheit in summer! I am a retailer of cigars. I have a gift shop located in one of the 4 star hotels here. Mostly jewellery,leather and craft, but we also sell cigars [emoji4] The market here for cigars is small and last year the government placed 30% tax on tobacco goods so it is not cheap to smoke, or drink (45%!). We sell a strong selection of Nicaraguan cigars and then I carry some of the main Cuban cigar brands. (Cohiba, Montecristo, Romeo, Punch,Bolivar and H.Upmann) I thought I would post some pics of my braai (barbeque) I did yesterday. Beef is pretty cheap here. You will see in the pics attached, Rump steak = $2.25 a pound, Fillet = $3.25 a pound ! I rolled that fillet in crushed peppercorns,corainder seeds, mustard seeds,rock salt,fresh garlic and a dash of chilli. Flame it for 2 minutes, let rest, cut 2 inch pieces and then finish for about 2-3 minutes until medium rare. Chicken wings are also massive here ( think you guys call them Buffalo Wings that side) and then a traditional SA sausage called Boerewors ( Afrikaans for Farmer Sausage) which you will find in every single butchery in Southern Africa, its a staple! I then made up a cous cous with feta,tomato,purple onion,parsley, olive oil and lemon juice to keep the wife happy. Little bit of chimichurri sauce on the side.. If any of you every come to Gaborone, please contact me and come and say hello [emoji4] Hoping to expand my limited cigar knowledge and meet some new people on the forum!
