One hundred and one Swaziland destinations - #16: The Ngwenya Glass Factory

The Ngwenya Glass Factory is one of the more often cited tourist stops here in Swaziland.

I included it because, well, bright orange glowing molten glass is quite a sight.

It flows like cold molasses and luminesces like lava.

The photos below depict the the activity on the glass factory floor and a few of the products.
