Travelling in Mozambique has been a hell of an adventure, and I am hoping Malawi would be easier...
My last trip is a 12h train one, exhausting but funny I have to say: queing at 4am with everyone before realising I did not need to because I had a 2nd class ticket, not a 3rd class one and I did not need to fight for my seat in the train (good news!); the lady in front of me bought something like 50 kg of vegetables on the way; and beautiful landscapes...
I then reach the border to Malawi and got ripped off exchanging money there...I did everyhting wrong: I was tired, alone, had a lot of money to change, let all the "exchnge money" guys surround me at the same time, and accepted the piles of small notes they gave me, hard to count! I guess this in a classic and this will be a lesson for next time... I want my mum!
