        We were up very early to try to get on this elusive tug boat to Likona island. We got a taxi with Dave and Tess down to the port and met Annemiek there. Lea had gone south a few days earlier than planned because she had to be back at work, probably a good idea given our recent stint of unreliable transport. We arrived at the ferry port again very early (just in case a miracle happened!) and bought our tickets. There was a reasonable price difference between first and second class so ...

        ... couple of more rounds the next day - three free drinks for me! After a lot of more tries, and tons of cuts (there were rocks at the bottom) and bruises (kind of hurt to fall out of the canoe), I had to settle for just one paddlestroke with legs inside. But I've heard they have the same challenge at several places along the lake, so I might get another shot at it as soon as my bruises have healed! Now ...

The first exception was a pot of small silvery fish purchased from the local fishermen for all of R3 cooked with locally purchased rice, another R3, and fried pepper, garlic and onions with a packet of instant tomato soup for a meal that was extremely 'fishy' and perhaps, by not removing the heads, bitter and a little crunchy. I learned later that the locals prepare the fish almost identically, but either by ...

        ... to Winchester Cathedral in the UK, over 100 feet long and 25 feet wide. We were very lucky to have been given a tour by Father Dominic, he showed us some of the highlights including a cross made from the Zambian tree where the famous explorer David Livingston's heart is buried. To see one of Malawi's most famous buildings was amazing, but even more amazing was to imagine the sheer determination of the missionaries to share their faith by building such a ...

        ... hour hike from the nearest road or by boat, luckily we timed our trip to coincide with the boat, phew! The boat that services the lake is called the Ilala an old steam boat that chugs up the lake and back once a week.

        We arrived early at the ferry port, which was lucky as it left half an hour early taking everyone by surprise and forcing a man to complete a daring leap from the lower deck. It turns out the captain was worried about completing the journey before ...
