Next Day
From South Luangwa, Zambia, we left the park with John and Barbara, the Zimbabwean farmers, in their Land Cruiser, and went to the nearest town, Chipeta. Then we caught another ride across the border into Malawi. By the afternoon we were walking the streets of Lilongwe, a place that may sound exotic, but it's really a dusty, provincial city without any tourist attractions besides the Shop-rite supermarket that sells fresh produce and recognizable brands names of food.
Campgrounds in Lilongwe, Malawi's capital city. We couldn't find a restaurant nearby, or even eating utensils, so we ate with our hands directly from a can of tinned vegetables. The carrots are easy to handle but the peas can be mushy.
