Where I stayed
Big Blue Star

Flag of Malawi  ,
Saturday, July 2, 2011

Together with Dina arrived at the Big Blue Star and got myself a 4 person dorm with only an American guy called Ken. He was already traveling for 22 months so had lots of cool stories to tell. Nkhata Bay is a very small but nice town with a beautiful view over the lake. Had some
relaxing days and did some snorkeling and kayaking and checked out the town for a beer. 

On Sunday Dina told me that the Wimbledon final was on so we walked around in the village and asked if they had the sports channel somewhere. After some searching we found the place and watched the match. We also met with some English guys (twin brothers) who were staying at Mayoka Village. Apparently there was a reggae artist in the evening so we decided to go there. It was however a very dark and spooky road out of town with no lights at all. I was glad we were with 2 because it was quite a frightening road and we had to ask some locals who lived in the forest for directions. Mayoka was really a beautiful place and we chilled out a few hours before heading back. 

On this day I bought a tent, a stove and gas from Ken for $50. Since my bag was quite full I decided to give away a t-shirt, my old all stars, a towel, and 2 pair of socks. Next day left the place and said goodbye to Dina with which I had a very good time. That's the way it goes if you are traveling.
