Our Giraffe group split into smaller sub-groups today so we could cover more ground. On these workdays, we get a better chance to get to know our Malawi team members. Dawn worked with Samual and John, while I traveled with Thoko and Joseph (and had a chance to catch up with Vincent, whom I worked with last summer)—we spent much of the walk chatting and laughing.
The area of Malawi we covered today is built on the slopes of a mountain—we walked approximately 9 miles, hiking up steep hills and crossing ditches and ravines on makeshift bridges as we trekked from door-to-door. We were lucky to have overcast weather today; although the sun broke through the clouds a few times, the weather remained relatively cool.
