Last entry of the year. Again it’s been a while. I’m laying on my shuka writing this, listening to the waves of Lake Malawi flap against our quiet, deserted beach in Mbamba Bay. A long bus ride from Morogoro to Songea and another typically hot, smelly and irritating bus ride from there brought me to this place where I spent last New Years. Have I really been here his long? What have I gotten out of this experience so far?
After a few last busy but not productive days in the village, I left for my holiday travels on the 21st. I’ve been trying to get things moving in my village, but the rains have started and it’s the holidays, so everyone has been busy planting.
