After a peaceful night of rest in Lilongwe, we reunited with Lazarus, our bus driver and dear friend, to make the 5ish hour journey back to Blantyre. The trip consisted of many a police stop, a wandering pig’s near death experience, and the gorgeous backdrop of Malawian countryside as we blazed southward towards our home-away-from-home with Pauline at Annie’s Lodge. By the time we made it into town, we were ready for dinner and bed, and not necessarily in that order. After traveling the country of Malawi, I think it’s safe to say that we will greatly miss our Malawian grandmother. Tomorrow is our free day, and will likely consist of packing and scavenging for last minute memories of the country we’ve grown so fond of. Saying goodbye will almost certainly feel more bitter than sweet, but we are excited to return to our loved ones back in The States. Here’s to the few more days we have left until we get to see your beautiful faces again!
