Southern Africa Adventure - Malawi 
We walked across the border to Malawi from Tanzania, with no transport arrangements on the other side.  We walked out of immigration straight into an empty parking lot.  That was a bit disconcerting.  :-)  Hrm...  What to do?  We put on our backpacks and began to walk south down the road.

We flagged down the first car we saw and luckily were able to get a lift into the nearest town, where we were able to arrange transport onward.  whew!

Malawi is so beautiful!  These pictures were shot from a moving car.  I love the little farm cottages that dotted the countryside.

We couldn't quite tell if the darker blue near the horizon was actually Lake Malawi or the sky - later it became clear that it actually was the lake.

This was our little cottage at the Njaya Lodge in Nkhata Bay.  Renting this set us back $16/night.  So steep!

We did have to share the place with many lizards and one mammoth spider..  I didn't get the sense however that they were paying as much rent as we were.

This was the view of the lake from our front porch.  So nice..  Unfortunately I started to get the flu early while I was here so I couldn't enjoy it as much as I had hoped.

Up the hill from our cottage was the main lodge where we could eat.  The meals were cheap and plentiful and the view was stunning!

Since I was sick and less than mobile, I spent a good deal of time hanging out here and trying to hydrate as best as I could.  I also got in trouble with the bartender behind me for purchasing custom hand carved key chains from a local boy.  We were supposed to conduct business on hotel grounds.  Sorry!  :-)

Lake Malawi is the ninth largest in the world, and it has more species of fish than any other lake in the world.
