I usually have like breakfast and then one meal for the day. My breakfast was tea and chapatti. I’m from Kenya, so we cook that Indian kind of food.
The way we make tea is you add the tea leaves — I have Kenyan tea leaves — with water and milk. When I go home, I bring them, or when someone goes, they bring them. Mainly I bring back food spices and tea leaves and some certain kind of coffee.
For dinner, I ate rice and beans. I used the rice cooker, and then for the black beans I had to fry them with mix of onions, red pepper and green pepper. To drink, I had mango juice.
