De Addis Abeba a Ciudad del Cabo (From Addis Ababa to Cape Town)


Southern Africa!

We’ve finally made it to Southern Africa (which means we’re in the same time zone as South Africa – which also means we’re getting close!) and Malawi’s our first stop.

After four days of nearly non-stop travel from Tanzania via a ferry, overnight train and countless hours on numerous buses we’re now in Nkatha Bay, a pretty little spot along Lake Malawi.

We’ve not yet had much of a chance to enjoy or explore our surroundings as it’s been raining quite a bit and I’ve not been able to move much (I twisted my foot – while still carrying my backpack – walking down some stairs looking for a place to stay on the day we arrived so it’s been swollen and purple and bandaged up since Friday night. Thankfully it now seems to be on the mend.)

Internet, mobile phone connections and electricity seem to be a bit erratic and we’re planning to head to Chidzimulu and Likoma Islands later tonight for about a week so it may be a while until we’re in touch again.

But we’re both ok (a bit tired but after a few days’ rest we hope all will be good again) and will fill you in on our last few days in Zanzibar and tell you about our Swahili cooking course as soon as we have a better connection.
