Hot breakfast was served, but no special meal for me AGAIN! Not impressed by Kenya Airways!
At 9:35 am we arrived Malawi, the warm heart of Africa. Passport control in Lilongwe went very efficiently. Getting our baggage was another issue. It took forever. While I was waiting I went to the National Bank to get some kwatcha, the local money. I was met by the nicest man with the biggest colgate smile I have ever seen. What a warm welcome!
After a nice lunch at our hotel in Lilongwe, we went to the Lilongwe Nature Centre. They have a lion, a leopard, a hyaena, a python, monkeys, crocodiles and duikers. The animals live in large enclosures and those that can go back to the wild, will be returned. This little place can easily be missed. The most exotic animals are fare away and difficult to see.
