Where I stayed
Continental Hotel

Flag of Tanzania  , Mbeya,
Monday, December 12, 2011

Mbeya was just a stop off as we headed to Malawi.

We stayed one night before getting a 6 hour bus and getting droped off close to the border. We completed the final 6k to the border on the back of two rickety bikes, before arriving and being swarmed by the black market traders.

At best our mathematics could be described as poor. So it was with great difficulty we counted out our TNZ shilling and then counted out the Malawian Kwacha we recieved was correct all whilst the other traders shouted better offers at us and accused each other of being crooks!

Once we crossed the border we shared a taxi with some locals and arrived in Karonga 90mins later.
