Now that the Independence Day is over, we will be going back to Chuluchosema today to spend time with families in the village. It should be an interesting day and a chance to build relationships.
We are now settled into Annie’s Lodge in Zomba until our final night in Blantyre. We have pretty good internet here in the mornings and evenings. If anyone needs to contact us then text messages to Alan’s phone are working fairly reliably. Phone calls are moderately reliable. However, for some reason we haven’t yet worked out, he can only send messages in reply and not phone calls.
Everyone in the group is still doing well. The food is good and we have comfortable accommodation. The closest we came to a mishap yesterday was when Lauren was apparently overcome with laughter at Sue’s experience of a cold shower.
Zomba market was an interesting experience for those of us who had not been to an African market before, but we all returned in one piece, even though we came back with slightly more passion fruits than planned!
We will have space in our luggage on the way home, so if anyone has any requests for African paintings, wood products, cloth etc. then send a message to one of us and we will see what we can do.
