Halloween Maboke!

Using Adam's multi-tool, we carved into a traditional squash, called
MABOKE by the locals in Lingala, to make ourselves an albeit very flat
pumpkin.

Dido, our somewhat eccentric chef, was quite aghast that the pumpkin
had no nose, but Seba, the driver, was quick to point out that it had
no ears, beard, or body either!

The skin of the maboke was so thick Adam had to use the *boning saw*
to get through it!

Interesting - I always understood maboke to be fish cooked with spicy wrapped in banana leaves! I expected to see you cooking fish in the pumpkin, and I was not sure how to feel about that.
