Lilongwe, Malawi: Arrival in Lilongwe on Sunday afternoon was very welcome after traveling since Friday evening. Happy (and a little bit tired) smiles all around the team. We were met by a Malawi Savings and Credit Co-operative (MUSCCO) staff member and were efficiently transported to the hotel in two different vehicles - which may not sound remarkable to most of you reading this blog, but is nothing short of amazing when we witnessed first hand the long line up for fuel at every gas station. We are told that people will wait in line for 3 days just to get the chance to buy fuel. Puts a whole new perspective on the typical Canadian experience doesn't it?
