I was surprised how quickly I got through the introduction and first chapter of the new book I'm reading! Then it was time to board the flight to Johannesburg. South African airlines are really efficient and as the flight was only half full, I managed to get a window seat and the seat next to me all to myself. I slept for most of the flight and was only sleepily aware of the turbulence, I don't think it lasted long. I did manage to stay awake long enough to eat dinner and watch the newest part of the Twilight saga. Unfortunately I fell asleep during Iron Lady.
The wait at Jo'Burgh wasn't very long and I was soon on a flight to Blantyre. It was nice to watch the approach into Chileka and know that the easiest thing to do was to sidestep the tourists taking photos of the flags and make a dash for immigration. I wasn't quite front of the queue but I was close enough. Thankfully my bags arrived intact and I was able to meet with Moffat (taxi-driver). The drive to the airport hasn't changed and the road to Makys is still in the same rough condition it was when I left last August.
Food as ever at Chez Maky is lovely, I had time to unpack, get myself sorted and have some lunch before Juma (one of the drivers) walked with me into town. It was thought best, so I wouldn't get lost or in-case I forgot my way around. Juma, wanted to know if I thought the walk was a long distance, I think he thought i was walking really fast.
So now I'm sitting in the restaurant, contemplating what to have for dinner, before I head for an early(ish) night and try to get some decent sleep.
