Lake Malawi

One last Malawian excursion

sunny 31 °C

With only two weeks or so left in Malawi, Marco and I decided to take one last adventure. With a group of friends from Lilongwe, as well as some new friends, we headed to the lake for the weekend. We rented a staffed house and all we had to do was show up with food and drinks. No cooking or cleaning necessary. Luckily, those driving down from Lilongwe took care of the food, transporting it from Neno was going to be near impossible. For someone that normally finds myself very involved in planning weekends like this, either by necessity or choice, it was a nice change to just be along for the ride. I brought clothes and cash and basically just asked how much I owed, and paid.

After 6 hours of travel from Neno, we were the first to arrive, just before dark. We started on the stocked fridge and the relaxing began. A weekend full of friends, food, the beach, a book, sunshine and a brilliant full moon. One last quick getaway to explore this beautiful corner of the world. I wish I would have had the time to explore more of this lovely country. It would have been great to make it up north to Nkata Bay, or Livingstonia, or Nyika Plateau, or to see the game reserves in Liwonde or Majete. But it didn't happen, and that's okay with me. Because the adventures I did take led me to see some amazing places and meet some even more amazing people.

Out on the project site, we are just waiting on the roof sheets to arrive so that it can be installed. Electrical work has begun and plastering of the interior and exterior is ongoing.

Not long now......I know you will miss the country and your friends and I also believe your presence has changed the lives of others as much or more than yours has been blessed by theirs. God loves you and so do we!
