The first week of the 2014 was a busy one - I arrived in Lilongwe on the 30th, unpacked and repacked for a trip to the lake, and a group of friends and I headed off that evening to stay at a lakeside cottage in Monkey Bay with the Moura family. We spent a lovely few days on the lake (well, for me, more of it was IN the lake, but that's not new or unexpected!), played games, ate a ton of food, celebrated the New Year, and then headed back to Lilongwe. My housemates, Jo and Jo, made the exciting decision to have the house fumigated, so we moved a bunch of our belongings and the entire kitchen out of the house, and then spent a day away from the fumes before cleaning the insect apocalypse up and moving back in. I also managed to get my car stuck in the ditch bordering the garden, so we had a fun and muddy time extracting it! We also made a trip to the local garden centre and got some more plants to add to the burgeoning garden in our yard. It was a fun and relaxing last bit of holidays before returning to work.
