This past weekend was amazing! Brittany's boyfriend Joe came for a visit, and all the Lilongwe girls took Monday and Tuesday off work so we could have an extra long weekend at Cape Maclear. Cape Mac is a beautiful area of Lake Malawi, and I am so thankful that I got to enjoy it!We arrived Saturday evening after having picked up Joe at the airport and driven 3.5 hours south to the Cape. Samantha & Roxanne, two of the other WUSC volunteers who live in Blantyre, got there before us and had a fun afternoon on the beach. We stayed at Mgoza Lodge (beautiful, amazing food, and reasonable prices!). We had a lovely evening together and made plans for Sunday. In the morning we hired a boat and went out to one of the nearby islands to go snorkelling with the cichlids! It was so cool! I am so thankful for Alisha and Mylan who brought their cameras out with us (Alisha's is waterproof, so we even got some underwater shots!). We hung out on the beach in the afternoon and said reluctant goodbyes to Sam and Roxanne, who unfortunately had to return to Blantyre for work. On Monday, we rented kayaks and paddled to Otter Point and went swimming with the cichlids again, and then, in the evening, went on a sunset cruise on a catamaran! We loved it so much at Otter Point, that Tuesday morning before we headed back to Lilongwe, we hired a boat again to take us out to the point for a few hours. And, of course, on our way home, we enjoyed the beautiful sunset and Malawian landscape!Cape Maclear is most definitely one of the most beautiful and relaxing places I have ever been to! If you ever make it out to Malawi, this must be on your list of stops!
