Malawi, watch out for the hawkers

Weather: fantastic.
Location: Blantyre – busy, Lilongwe – sparce, the lake – now we’re talking!
Company: Locals – pushy, foreigners – infected.
Affordability: Cheap, but the allowance sucks enough to make up for that.
Highlight: Feeding fish eagles.
Lowlight: Bilhazia.

I’ve been to Malawi a lot. In fact at one stage I used to do all my rice shopping for in Malawi. They have the best rice, I can recommend the Kilombero aromatic rice brand, it's delicious.

On my first trip to Malawi I was travelling with a cool Norwegian guy named Stein. He is a big viking of a man.
