After Zanzibar, just when we thought we couldn't get enough beach time, we headed off to Lake Malawi - specifically Kande Beach. Again, we didn't do much here other than relax in the hammocks and rack up a rather shocking bar tab. Guess who won? We also reigned supreme at the foosball table, less so at pool.

The most surprising thing about Malawi so far has been the beautiful crafts and artwork that is for sale. It's so different than anything we've seen elsewhere in Africa, and it's very cheap to buy. They're famous for their carved chairs, although we like the masks and paintings. As we work our way towards the end of our trip, our bags are getting heavier...
