    Our (my wife and I's) favorite saying by our guide was "I am about to have a sense of humor failure" said, when things didn't go right.

    A common positive Afrikaans remark

    'Bakgat!' after a good shot/meal/experience ect. [loud gggg....] [a compliment after something good or well done,]
    or in a greeting 'how are you?'-BAKGAT [=fine,very good,nice!]

    or the opposite [a common negative remark,expressing disappointment]

    'Gatvol' [ggg...]= I'm gatvol [fed-up] with this,[I don't want to do this anymore,]


    'lekker'= nice,sweet,ok,tasty,good,enjoyable [depends on the context]
    this food,or 'braai' [barbecue] is lekker
    the holiday,trip,experience was 'lekker'

    Another is "Braai Broodjie" meaning a sandwich filled with tomato, cheese, onions and chutney. Toasted on wooden coles and served with a braai/barbeque dinner/lunch. Who ever tasted this? My personal favorite!! braai-broodjies-sm.jpgIMG_3636.jpg
