Once upon a time 20 TGS students travelled to Malawi. After heavy traffic and a forgotten passport we arrived at Heathrow in time to catch our plane to Johannesburg. After hours of sleeping and watching movies we arrived in Blantyre at midday. We collected our 30ish bags (taking up the entire airport) and exchanged our money. As we walked to get our bus we were waved at by a group of school children before our departure to Fisherman's Rest.
Our coach journey was very eye opening to see the living conditions, some peoples' lack of shoes and the number of Carlsberg adverts.
So far at Fisherman's rest we have discussed the trip to come, sang some songs with Niamh's guitar and tasted some Malawian food including nsima.
Lots of love to everyone back home!
P.s. We are living with impalas.
PPS wi- fi down so photo to come tomorrow!
