      ... a shower with water pressure, cold drinks, delicious food, a toilet seat that didn't slip each time I sat on it! But even as I luxuriated in these rediscovered wonders of modern life, I thought about the villagers. After all, throughout our trip I did have a shower, I did have clean water to drink, I did have enough to eat, I did have a toilet on which to sit. To what do I owe the great good fortune that I was born where I was?

      Tomorrow we begin the long trek ...

      Though I enjoyed the festival, I never felt comfortable at the cottage. If there's one thing traveling has taught me, it's how to squirrel myself out of a bad situation. I decided to make my way to cape maclear, which is a backpacking Mecca by the shores of lake malawi roughly 130km away from the cottage.

      ... for a real good chat with Jarred, he is a top guy (even if he doesn't stand a round!). He really loves Cassie and loves talking about her, I've got a lot of time for him already.

      ... of character
      for Africa. Bizarre! The 2 nights we spent there were spent with
      Nomalha, she would pick us up and take us to some bars and
      restaurants. The funny thing about Nomalha was we were told by my
      friend that she was a Malawian princess!!! Our imaginations were
      running wild, trying to think what she would be like...In fact she
      wasn't a Malawian princess, instead a lovely, bubbly 'normal'
      individual who had never travelled by ...
