We stopped at Karonga just for a night to stock up on cash before south.

Once we had the cash we needed we took a four hour bus to Chitimba. From Chitimba we were hoping to arrange a lift to take us the rest of the way. We were directed to a group of guys who could organize lifts, and were quoted KW8,000 (35 pounds) for the 10k's up the mountain to Livingstonia! So we called them a pack of clowns and headed up on our own...

After the first 1km we really regretted not sticking around to at least negotiate. It was really tough lugging our stuff up the mountain, but when we made it we felt people could have mistaken us for marines.....well, at least a couple of TA recruits.
