Weekly Photo Challenge: Half and Half

A response to this week’s photo challenge :Half and Half

there have been so many glorious sunrises and sunsets on our trip from Victoria to Victoria, and these fit the theme perfectly. This one stands out though because of the angle. It was taken last week at Monkey Bay in Malawi.image

Here are some other Sunrises /Sunsets from our trip in Tanzania,Malawi and Zambia over the last three weeks.

Keeping things Charged

One of the challenges of travel in this electronic age is keeping things charged. As I write this I have 10% left on my iPhone. In hotels and homes this is fairly OK and although more challenging when camping.

In fact the bigger issue is connectivity – especially when crossing borders. My other blog  is more erratic because of this. Do follow our journey as we reach the Victoria Falls tonight.  

Leaving Malawi

Today we say farewell to has been a great 10 days. Anita has introduced us to her home country of old, the place she lived for almost two years, the people she knew; Paul and Helen; Bambo James and his family; the villagers of Chilimba; Saulos and Patricia; the family of Pastor Ndomondo; Sam. All of these name have become faces to me now.

We have enjoyed traveling from Likoma to Monkey Bay to Zomba, Liwonde, Dedza and now Lilongwe. Malawi is a great place with fabulous friendly people. We shall come back some day I am sure. Next stop Zambia! 


Anita’s Return

I make no bones about plugging my other blog today as we returned to Chilimba, the village where Anita worked as an NGO in 1992/3. It was a truly special day and I hope you’ll find some time to read it.
