06 May 2019 – This is an imported page from an old blog I kept during my travels to Malawi. Next month (June 2019) as part of this year’s Norwich-Dedza Partnership exchange, teachers from Malawi will be visiting the UK. So in celebration and preparation for that, I will be re-blogging the thoughts I made during my visit in 2013.
You can find an index of all the 2013 Malawi blog entries here. Zikomo!
“We are on our way!”
25th May 2013; Thetford, UK
12 intrepid explorers on a minibus travelling down the A11! 12 hearty souls getting acquainted (some of us have been to Malawi with the Partnership before, others like me for the first), chatting away. In tow, our trailer full of boxes and bags of books, clothing, electrical equipment, educational resources… (I think there are some personal items in there too!). We’re all taking a resource box each, on top of our out luggage packed with goodies!
Tikupita ku Heathrow!
Chichewa – We go to Heathrow! (Anyone out there feels my Chichewa needs correcting, please don’t hesitate!)
