Meandering through villages in Malawi

Mzuzu, Malawi

Our border crossing took a while, and after another big day on the road, we arrived at Ngala Beach Resort on the shores of Lake Malawi. The campers pitched their tents under the shady trees and we dragged our bags up the hill to our lovely little bungalow. After dinner we had a few drinks with the owner Sandy, and sang along to a collection of songs from the 70’s and 80’s. A great chance to dance a bit after a long day sitting! The following morning we did a village walk, our guides name was John Howard…he thought that was hilarious! He assured us everyone loved having their picture taken, and liked to view the screen afterwards, so we had a chance to get some close-ups. The schools are overflowing! One class had over 120 students and only two teachers. At the second school we visited, further north, there were 80 in the beginners class (3-5 year olds) and one young teacher…they were so excited to see us! We all bought some exercise books and pencils from the local shop for the kids. We really have it easy, by comparison, in Australia with the ratios of adults to students!
