My New Zulu Phrase

I learned a new phrase in Zulu today. It's used to describe when it's raining, or rather trying to rain, but is little more than a mist. The phrase is amathe ezimpukane, and it translates literally as "fly spit".

Love this! Only know "khiza" - and not even sure of that spelling.
(And of course, the Irish/Scottish "pissing" - what we had this week :)
