Four arrived on time in Malawi


Five of group 2 were bumped off the flight from Johannesburg to Malawi. 😦 For those of us (Wendy Prescott, Jen Messmer, Georganne and George D’Angelo) who did arrive on schedule in Malawi, we were greeted by fellow travelers from Ethiopian and Kenyan airways all landing at the same time.  The airport was like no other, the chaos was incredible, three full flights bringing in travelers from across the globe sharing one luggage carousel.  What a sigh of relief when George hoisted our suitcases over the stairway railing after infiltrating the masses.

We received a warm Malawian welcome from Henry, Dr. Nyirongo, his grandson, Mwaona and Henry Solomon (who we called Henry Jr.).  The ride to our hotel, the Korea Garden Lodge was full of the sights and sounds of Malawi.  We especially got a kick out of the gigantic mice kabobs being sold on the side of the road.  We were told it tastes better than chicken, we found it tempting but decided to pass them up.

After a quick freshening up we headed over to the market.  We were instantly surrounded by all the boys telling us to use our brains and buy their goods.  Thanks goodness for Dr. Nyirongo and Mwaona to take us under their wings.
