Early rise again for us just because we woke up early and the view was so beautiful. We saw a rock-rabbit in front of our lodge. Remco took a picture and then suddenly a big baboon came in and jumped in front of us.
During breakfast we heard a lot of shouting in the neighborhood. It turned out to be the auction of the fish in the village next to the lodge.
We decided to see a Crocodile Farm. It is the biggest farm in Malawi where they breed crocodiles for the skin and their meat. We learned that they pull the teeth of these crocodiles so that they are not able to bite the one who takes care of them. They are slaughtered when they are 5 years old.
Afterwards we wanted to go to the market in Salima. We were quite a head turner for the Malawian. Two tourist, one bold and the other one very blond. After a while I realized my skirt was maybe a little too short for their standards ;-). We bought a few souvenirs at the shop where they make the school uniforms.
Sitting on the side of the road we started counting how many people fits in a minibus, including big packets of maize and lots of luggage. It turned out to be 33, including 5 children. It took a while (about 30 minutes) and a lot of hassling to get everyone in, paying the right price. It does not matter if you sit comfortable, you just have to be glad to have a way of transportation.
Also these ‘bicycle taxi drivers’ await the people from the minibus to transport them further to their destination.
Back at the Lodge we encountered a Dutch family who is traveling around Africa with their 2 children. They have a big landrover and do a lot of wild camping. Funny that you meet everywhere you go Duchies.
