Next Day
With nothing to keep our attention in Lilongwe, we take a bus into the central Malawi, arriving in a town called Nkhotakhota (try asking for directions to a place called Nkhotakhota).
Possibly the best attraction in Malawi are the people themselves, always smiling and willing to pose.
What happens to second hand clothing from America? Some of it ends up on the street markets of Malawi. We're not sure if donating clothes to Africa is helpful because it destroys the local clothing industry and the clothes are resold, not given away to the poor.
Buses offer several types of seating: roof, aisle, or in someone's lap.
