    ... the men can eat as much or as little as they want without the women seeing. One pot boils the beef, while the other pot boils some herbs and tree bark they use for medicine to stay strong.

I refused to have more then one drink because this campsite is open in the Serengeti and there was elephant poopoo (people here call it poopoo which I snicker at each time) pretty much next to our tent.
