October 3 (Monday) – Returning from Zomba to Blantyre, but diverting to visit Lake Malawi in between! I am very excited about this. Lake Malawi is famously beautiful and Malawi’s big tourist destination, and I have never been there (this is my sixth trip). Mala is annoyed that the normal pattern for short-term missions in Malawi is spending one week doing work, followed by a week at Lake Malawi, so he only lets me go for 1/2 day every six trips… Ha!
