Flag of Malawi  ,
Wednesday, March 15, 2006

The bus was two hours late leaving Harare, but the ride was pretty painless, even though there were two border crossings (in and out of Mozambique). My bags were searched for the first time, barely.

Mozambique looked like a rough place. I'm glad I didn't stop in. Southern Malawi looked similar to much of Zimbabwe and Mozambique. The granite boulders and huge mountains dotted the landscape, and the baobab trees appeared and reappeared throughout the ride. The sun set and the full moon rose for the last couple hours of the journey, hiding the maize and highlighting the true shape of the land in Afro-blue.

We arrived in Blantyre around 9 p.m., and I jotted down some contacts I'd made on the bus. It's a 100 meter walk from the bus station to the popular hostel. They said I could pay the next day, when I got some Malawian kwacha. I took the hottest shower of the journey, shot out a couple emails and went to bed.
