Mestilde Shigwedha, a diamond polisher for NamCot Diamonds in Windhoek, Namibia with her day's worth of food. (From the book What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets.) The caloric value of her day's worth of food on a day in March was 2000 kcals. She is 28 years of age; 5 feet, 1 inch tall; and 120 pounds. Diamonds are one of Namibia's major exports, and while conflict diamonds grab the headlines, the fact is that the industry does provide a fairly decent living for many. "Mesti," as she is called, grew up in the north of Namibia near the Angola border in a mud and stick house that she helped cement with dung. She now rents a room in a house in Windhoek and supports family members and herself on her small income from Namcot. MODEL RELEASED.
