Today was Steve's birthday. We certainly celebrated Steve's 29th in style! Not quite the high street fashion, but the fasion in the markets of Malawi! ;) This day we were each given 500 Malawi Kwacha, which 140 Kwacha is about 1 USD. We were given 45 minutes in the Market in the middle of no where, to buy the ugliest clothes we could think for the person whose name we previously drew from the hat! It was a lot of fun going to the market and shopping. I went along with Steve, I bought a sleeping dress for Kasey and Steve bought for Miguel! We both decided to buy this pair of pyjamas for Miguel with a leopard printing on it, quite suitable being in Africa and all that. The funny thing was that this print was quite popular among us and everyone had bought different clothes with the same print!

Later that night when we got to the campsite, we had dinner, we made our own drinks and exchanged the gifts. It was hilarious! Everyone looked ridiculous in their outfits! Not to mention Johan, who was our driver. He was given a complete Barbie/ballerina outfit, in pink of course, with a picture of Barbie on the belt! :) You will see from the photos. Mine wasn't too bad. Larrissa bought me this skirt which was down to my knee on the sides and slightly longer on the front and the back, kinda like a triangular shape
skirt. It had snake prints and the top, well lets say she wasn't sure what colour would go with my snake skirt, so she just got carried away and bought the most colourfull shirt you can think of! Like a rainbow! And to complete the whole outfit I had a red scarf! Rather tasty!

Once we exchanged outfits and had a drink, we headed to the bar at the campsite and started celebrating Steve's bday properly! :) It was a great night with lots of drinks and music and the night eventually ended at about 4 in the morning!

Happy Birthday again Steve and hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. By the way without giving too much away, Steve's outfit was a very short skirt in black, with a pink top saying "small but nice" and to top it all he had his stick because of his ankle! I can't wait for you to see the photos! :)
