Eventless food My food in Malawi does feed me so basically it makes the job, but there is not so much I enjoy in it. I have the feeling that eat exactly the same things all the time but that’s not completely right, living on the campus of the school where I work gives me 3 options. First option I can get the school food, which is prepared for the students three times a day. The other teachers eat at their home on the campus and the other employees of the school eat their own food. So far after 2 months here I never managed to be awake on time for the breakfast so I can’t say much about it, I just heard it was porridge during the week and bread on the week-end. Then, for ... read more

Arrivée au Malawi - il y a bientôt deux mois Henry le directeur de l’école où je vais travailler m’a obtenu un visa, mais malheureusement avec entrée sur le territoire à l’aéroport. Ceci m’oblige à payer un billet d’avion qui coute autant pour un vol de deux heures que pour aller au bout du monde. Je m’étais réjouis de traverser le Mozambique et le Zimbabwe en bus et avait réglé toutes les formalités et suis donc un peu dégoûté de prendre l’avion, mais au final je suis heureux de rejoindre le Malawi. Le directeur de l’école vient m’accueillir à l’aéroport. Nous nous saluons de manière très chaleureuse, il est mort de rire car je ne ressemble absolument pas à la photo qu’il avait en sa possession. Nous sortons du minuscule aéroport de la capitale Lilongwe et ... read more

Lilongwe is not the typical African capital city. It's laid back and low key. We decided to stay an extra day to catch our breath and also because we liked our hotel room so much. But, it turned out our room was already reserved. So, we went to the bus station around 11:00 and caught a half bus to Monkey Bay on Lake Malawi (Lake Nyassa). We were told it was a 4-5 hour trip. From Monkey Bay, it's a short hop to Cape Maclear, our actual destination. A half bus is a bus that seats less than 40 people and are older and less comfortable than full size buses. Only one full size bus goes each day to Monkey Bay, but it leaves early. The half buses leave whenever they are full. Full means really ... read more

I got up quite early the day I eventually decided to leave Nkhata Bay. The only problem was that I wasn't certain where I was actually going to go! I wanted to head south to Cape MacLear, but having not been up in time to catch the 6 o'clock bus there, I was fairly certain that this wasn't possible in one day. I ended up hanging around Mayoka Village for a while longer, so I could get a boat across to the bus station, as opposed to walking up the hill and down again. When I got to the bus station, I found a bus that was going to Salima. I decided I would get on this, as Salima is quite close to Senga Bay and I figured that this might be a good place to ... read more

Hey Guys, Well after what we had thought was a crazy trip to get to Malawi we soon realized our first trip inside Malawi was gonna be a good one! Once at the main bus center in Lilongwe we found out that there was only one bus to Senga Bay where we were going and it was completely full. So I leave Tyne with the bags and go to find out when the next bus is and end up buying tickets for the already super overfull bus sitting in front of us. Needless to say Tyne is pretty happy, so we walk up to the bus and the conductor is ready to squeeze us and our packs into the bus, since the saying goes " there is ALWAYS one more seat in Africa" so as the ... read more
