If ever there was a key destination, that is not a "destination" at all, it would be relaxing with informal fish sellers along various patches of roads, all over the North West Province of South Africa.

What stands out is that one is empowered to mingle with locals and enjoy freshly caught local fish while sitting on logs, broken bricks or the fence around the fire. "I did not know that such places existed," said James Milton, a tourist with roots in the United States.

"I am not used to eating food without marked labels and ingredients, but figured if the locals can eat it and enjoy it... and live, then it was worth a shot. The fish looks intimidating. It is pitch black and cooked on the open fire, right there in the middle of nowhere, but once you try it, you will love it," concluded James.

On a personal note, I personally make a conscious effort to stop by and greet the locals when safe to do so. Even if you are not much of a fish eater, you get a chance to sit and catch up on African folktales and more. You can find out about the type of food that they have on offer to how it is caught. Support local!

It is however in your best interest to stay far away from allergies and use your own discretion as to what you consume and how much you eat. I'm all up for supporting local trade. You can also do your bit!
