Our home from July to December 2006 was a cute little cottage at Emafini Compound, a few miles outside of Mbabane.  Swaziland had about 1.1 million people at that time, most living rurally but with two major cities of approximately 100,000 each: Mbabane, the government capital and Manzini, the commercial center. Our lovely home overlooked a deep, beautiful valley and was surrounded by forests which allowed us periodic visits from Vervet Monkeys. The TechnoServe office in Mbabane was in a relatively modern building with retail on the lower floor and connected by a bridge over the Mbabane River to “The Mall.”
