The beauty of senene season--senene is a type of bush cricket/long-horned grasshopper considered a delicacy in parts of East Africa--is having your loved ones who live in parts where senene is harvested sending you some so that you don't miss out on the season.
As a Muhaya, from northwestern Tanzania, living in Dar es Salaam, come senene season, I receive senene in all forms.
This particular batch of senene, given to me by niece Lucy, was some of the most delicious I ate this past senene season.
Although, the wings and legs of these senene had not been removed (so made for a weird feeling in the back of my throat), they had been smoked, reminding me of back in the day when all the senene I ate would have stayed months over my grandmother's or aunts' hearth waiting for my Dad and his family to visit from abroad.
