…The land is so many shades of green with air smelling of
wood burning. It feels incredible to be back! I know I stand
out, (I hear childrens saying.. “azungu”..) but I feel
comfortable and at home. This car ride from the airport, if
only you can experience each of the five senses with me!
Many variations of clouds dance in the sky; beautifully
scattered about. Oh, and this breeze… cool cool air flying in
and out of the windows. Sunglasses on and I gaze into the sky
searching for the source of heat I feel. Then I stare into the warm sun
as if I had been in hibernation for half a year. Regae pop music from the
car radio ignites my ears with joy and I smile, for I am happy to feel all these
emotions. In every direction the road is adorned with people in beauiful hues
of colorful clothing; bicyclists go to and fro and vendors
roadside selling goods.
Malawi is not called the “Warm Heart of Africa” by mistake.
… this is a journal entry from my car ride from the
airport with my friend Movuti and to my dear sister, Tinahe’s house.
Traveling went smooth. Thank you for the prayers. More to come when I buy my internet card next week. Prayer for no power outages, or limted ones at least, and you will hear from me!
sweet! glad to hear you made it ok. Say hi to malawi for us!
Beautifully written sis! Thanks for the update 🙂 mwah P.S. Send my love to Tinashe!
Can’t wait for more stories and pictures ahead 🙂 say hi to the madisi crew for me!
That sounds beautiful. How does the land feel? I’d imagine it feels old, familiar. Like your grandfathers old armchair or something… I’m glad this trip is happening, the rejuvenation and excitement I’ve seen build in you was amazing. I can only IMAGINE how much good you’re going to do now that your feet have finally touched ground. 🙂
