One of our walks into town: Chitimba, Malawi

Kids of Chitimba, Malawi While on our overland journey across 9 countries in Africa, we often camp just a short walk from little local villages.  One of our favorite things to do is to walk into town after getting our tent all set up.  We would often meet amazing people who were so friendly and gracious to us.  We have been invited into homes, played with countless children, joined soccer games, pulled a stool up at the local pub and sampled food from the markets.  It is great a great way to experience Africa.  Although all the countries we've visited so far have been extremely friendly, the people of Malawi take friendliness to a new level.  No matter where we were or what we were doing, there was always a local to welcome us with open arms.Photo Lesson  Quick learners

    Hi Guys! I’m loving your Malawi posts. It brings me back to when I was there 8 years ago. The people are amazing, aren’t they? The third poorest country in the world…they have so little by Western standards, but are so much happier and kinder. Kinda makes me wonder what is truely important in this world. Thanks for sharing your adventures!
