Well, we eventually made it here, mid afternoon on Tuesday after a flight delay and an indirect flight from Nairobi which added a touch-down in Lusaka (Zambia) before Lilongwe. Somewhat exhausted, the two groups have gone their separate ways - Group A to their first project and Group B spending today finding our way around Lilongwe. Tomorrow we (Group B) are heading north to Mzuzu area to start our project too. Highlights of the day from Group B's point of view was meeting the locals as we made our way around town - so incredibly friendly. We have an early start tomorrow - getting up at 4:30 to take tents down in the dark before leaving at 6 to catch the early bus!

Thinking of you guys lots! Glad you are having such an exciting time! Here all is good, apart from very rainy and grey and cold and stormy and windy and miserable, so the usual!.... ( Oh, and Mr Beer's health chart is not getting better either, the box for 'tired' is becoming far too small!...) U take care. Lots of love from Mrs P. xx

Thanks for this, we know no news is good news but it's always nice to get positive proof that the teams got there safely. Do Group A have the ability to make Blog postings or will this be mostly Group B except when the teams meet up at a few points?

I hope all is going well and that when the best-laid plans go awry you will have fun hatching a new plan! What a wonderful experience is ahead of you after all the advance planning and fund raising. I look forward to following your blog.
