Day 1: Arrival

After the rather emotional goodbye at school we headed to Heathrow airport to catch the lengthy journey on the dream liner (consisting of sleep, movies and making bracelets. 

Finally we stopped at Addis Ababa to get our second flight to Blantyre. I think we can all agree, the highlight of our travels was the bus journey from the airport, listening to the drivers very own Gospel music album, eating sausage rolls and waving at the friendly locals. 

At last, we arrived at the rustic Fisherman's Rest in Blantyre, running in from the rain to devour a meal consisting of chicken stew, rice and beans followed by cake for Erins birthday (and trying to avoid the hairy spiders). 

Today we will be driving to Chillingani village and setting up camp  before starting the project.
