Where I stayed
Like Chizumulu we spent most of our time relaxing on the beach with plenty of swimming.
We were interrupted one morning when what looked like a huge plume of smoke threatened to engulf the beach. Although it was not smoke, it was a cloud of lake flies. Billions and Billions of lake flies forming a cloud maybe 3 football fields long and one high. It was something from a horror film as we watched them carried past our beach a couple of kilometer's from shore.
We had a lovely Christmas day and dinner with the other guests at the lodge, although this all counted for nothing and Christmas 2011 will be remembered as a complete disaster. My behavior could only be described as impeccable this year, so the only thing I can think off is an administrative error from Santa's logistics team.
After a very enjoyable stay at Likomo we got the boat across the lake to Cobue in Mozambique and then we hitched a lift 6 hours south east to Lichinga.
