A safari and one church

Ever since the man with the infected finger, I'm just gonna tell you a little bit about what we've done. So we went on a 2 day safari with 3 game rides. We saw lots of animals, including lions, leopards, elephants, giraffes, baboons and many others. Funny story about the baboons, while we were just hanging out one of the baboons tried to steal Lily's chips. Funny how it knew what to go for. And then the went for the pop.

We also went to Dedza today where it is known to make amazing pottery, the best in Malawi. And it's a world wide tourist attraction and we met a woman who was HIV positive and she had a little one year old son and so we quickly talked about it and we gave her money to pay for the medication for at least 2 years. And we are hoping the little boy doesn't have HIV too.

Later on this week, we are going to be heading to a remote village called Mangochi. There we will sleep in a village hut, and get to see what a village life is like.

It's just so amazing to be back and to hear all the same songs but at the same time it is hard to see how poor they are. For example, Hiv, lack of food and nutrition and just the malnourished stomaches.

And that is your Malawi update. I will write to you as soon as I can. There may not be internet in Mangochi.
