    ... being Saturday, none of the 2500 workers were picking leaves. Dinner was in the sitting room at a lovely little table strewn with flowers and lacey napkins twisted into swans nested in wine glasses. Never seen anything like it. We could look out over the garden where monkeys made their way across the lawn, babies clinging to their mothers as they clambered up their favourite tree. The owner, Chip, who grew up in the house dropped by, and invited us to his home ...

    ... continents (no rush for Antarctica J). I am planning to go to the US embassy in the coming weeks to renew my passport so I can do some travelling while I’m here.

    Today I went to a Wi-Fi cafe of sorts. It is a very small guesthouse with an adjacent lounge. People visit the lounge to hang out, eat, watch TV and most of all access free internet. I order a Malawian dish nsima and chicken; I wasn't ready for the amount of food they brought me. It was really tasty. George Maky the owner or Maky as he prefers is very aware of his guests, his regulars and newcomers. He strikes up ...

    ... us to lunch at his home the next day. I’ll have my wife cook for us he says. Seriously, is he for real? Thankfully, Malawians aren’t aggressive so they remain “gentlemen" throughout the night.

    The entertainment was relatively good; it was interesting to watch Malawians dance. Women dance with women and men with men. In the few times men and women danced together, it was very clean, no gyrating and enough space between them for people ...
