My name is Sefiwa Mfolwe, I am 9 years old. I live in Gaborone, Botswana. My language is Setswana, but we also speak English. At school, we are taught in English. On the picture, I am the girl to the right side, wearing our school’s blue jacket against the cold wind. The rainy season will start very soon, now, and it has already become quite chilly, especially in the mornings.
I go to a private school, and attend standard 3. In the morning when I get up, I wash my face and bath. I eat my breakfast and then I come to school. For breakfast, I have viennas (meat), sometimes Russians (sausages), bread and tea.
On a normal school day, I write, read and play. When I go home I bathe and go to bed. At school my favorite subject is English, but the subject I like the less is maths. My favorite sport is athletics, although I am not very good at it.
On Saturdays I visit my friends at their home. On Sunday morning I go to church. Then I go home and do my homework. During the week-end, we usually eat rice, chicken, butternut (sort of pumpkin) and beetroots. This is a typical dish from Botswana.
Another very traditional meal you can eat here is porridge and spinach. I like it very much.
My favorite day is may the 1st, because it’s my birthday. I don’t do anything special during that day: I play, and have fun with my family. We swim in the swimming pool, run, and jump all around.
In Botswana, I saw giraffes, elephants, ostriches, and many more other animals, but I didn’t see any lions. I could see those animals on the park. But you can also spot some on the roads if you are lucky, like elephants, dogs, cats, cows, and donkeys.
