Today was spent the morning catching up on blogging, repacking, resorting, and preparing for our next leg – six days in Harare. This afternoon we spent some time with a friend of John and Joanna, Saleem. He is the owner of the Budget Backpacker's Lodge where Vivian (and later me) spent the last two weeks. Saleem’s family arrived in Malawi some two generations ago, brought to Malawi by the British ...

Not my best but since more climbs and wind it was a success. ...
... visit to Chimwemwe Youth Group (same name - it means Happiness) which is based in a nearby village. I didn't really understand what was happening at first or why I was there but, I have learned to be patient. My understanding developed the longer I spent there chatting to Henri and some of the youth group members. They are a youth group, initially set up by the Dedza Youth Officer in the early 1990s, with the aim of encouraging young people to learn ...
