Sept. 22 – Farewell to Mvuu and on to the next adventure

After an early morning boat cruise where we once again saw crocs, rhinos and elephants, we headed to Lilongwe, the capital of Malawi, for an overnight stay before going on to Zambia. We had a “tailgate” party on the side of the road, making peanut butter and Marula jelly sandwiches, much to the amusement of truckers passing by.  When a huge open truck filled with dozens of white bags of flour (?) with three young guys perched on top passed by, the amused guys signaled high fives. We stopped in Dedza and had tea on the patio of the restaurant associated with the Dedza pottery store.  Negotiating Lilongwe was difficult as there are few road signs and many traffic circles. We were grateful to arrive at our hotel before dark.
