Zulu - Winter in Canada

It is -27 in Winnipeg, Canada so we shall do a post about the cold.
For starters, let us refresh our memory:

·         Cold is banda in Zulu. 

·         Water is called amanzi in Zulu.

·         A human being is called umuntu in Zulu.

·         Food is called ukudla in Zulu.

·         Tea is itiye.  Please note that Europeans brought tea to Africa.  That is why itiye is a Zulu version of tea.
