For Malaza being a rural area, most peasants go barefoot. Myself, I use to browse around barefoot : in the garden, the orchards, the vegetable patches... but only within our domain. Outside, it's a bit difficult :-) One day I would get used to walking on zébu pooh and risking walking on thorns... well, I am more concerned about walking on zébu pooh than about thorns. Actually, visiting our rose patch, I use to walk on thorns too...

However, the sight of the grass instinctively drives me to take off my shoes (even sandals and flip-flops). The urge for barefoot prevails.. always..

Walking barefoot is something I miss in Brussels. Unless I go to parks, I cannot do it... memories and habit of life in Malaza has got me to enjoy parklife, esp. in spring and summer, when I can take off my shoes and walk around barefoot... aaarghhh!
