The best part of the day for many African ex-pats is watching the sun go down while sitting on a terrace with a great view and enjoying a long cool drink.

Favourite sundowners are: gin & tonic with lots of ice; ice-cold Tusker lager; or a dawa (Swahili for medicine), a cocktail of squeezed lime, vodka, honey and... lots of ice.
