Malawi was amazing, the landscape was beautiful, the people were friendly and accommodating and I feel like I’m doing the country a massive injustice giving it only one post with 8 pictures, but sometimes you have to put the camera away and just enjoy being somewhere.
Everywhere the truck stopped we attracted a crowd, this was stopping for lunch not long after crossing the border in a place that appeared to be isolated.
Our first stop was a Chitimba on the northern shores of Lake Malawi. There isn’t a hall of a lot to do here except relax on the shore of the lake or, as in our case, hike. We went up mount Livingstone to Livingstonia, an old missionary town. It was a very long, hot, sweaty hike, but worth it.
Our last few days were spent at Candy Beach, a while down the coast of the lake. Lake Malawi is big and clear and if no one told you otherwise you’d swear you were on a tropical island in the middle of the ocean. Literally nothing much happened except relaxing, beach volleyball and a fair amount of partying, which may or may not have involved a large pig on a spit, the slaughtering of which me and a couple of others went to watch, something I think all meat eaters should at sometime do. However I didn’t take my camera with me, so no photos…
