On Saturday, Erin and I decided to travel east to Lake Malawi, just outside of the town of Salima. It was an interesting start as the driver picked up his friend to come along with us, but we’ve learned to ‘go with the flow’ and it was nice to have another person sitting in the back of the car who could point out little points of interest.
When we asked to be taken to Lake Malawi, we really didn’t know beyond that we'd see "the lake". We were actually taken to a Sunbird resort, and since we were staying at a Sunbird hotel in Lilongwe were given full access to the grounds.
The one downside is the water itself. Even though we saw Americans and locals splashing in the waves, Erin and I were good little Canadians and stayed on the beach as we were told not to go swimming in the lake by our doctors. It was relaxing nonetheless and I was a bit tired as we headed back into town.
