This place is amazing! After 5 weeks of being here in Malawi, I'm still really loving it. I'm learning more and more about African life and everything is always so fascinating, even if it's really frustrating at the same time. Things generally happen pretty slowly here, which can be frustrating if you really need to get stuff done, but I find that I've adapted pretty well to “Af... Read Full Entry

Africa rulez!!!!!
Ahoooj Kim, I am so happy for your happiness!(And sooooo jealous that you are still there in Africa:) Your blog entries are really positive and one can feel from them how much you are enjoying your life there...I already miss Africa and Togo so much (that is why I am soo jealous:) I've been back in the Czech republic for 2 weeks now and I had to get used to our fast moving life again.In Togo everyone was laughting at my fast walking and I kept hearing: "Maja, walk the African way!" When I finally got used to their african tempo I was back in Prague where everybody is nearly running in the streets..So enjoy the \"African time\" because you will definitely miss it in our always rushing countries.. And ooohhh I miss their food too..Do they eat FUFU in Malawi? The paste is made of igname (I think it is called yam in English) and they eat it with some souce with fish, chicken or lamb and it is sooo good.. So, once again enjoy it there as much as you can, eat, pray, love:) and I hope we will be able to meet after your stay there to talk, talk and talk about our african advantures! When are you actually coming back?(Sorry, for this question, I know you don\'t want to hear about coming back)....Posílám pusu a pozdravy od mé rodiny a Akima:)
