Malawi: From Scotland to Immigration

The journey from Scotland to Malawi was quite straightforward; the flights were fine and with the exception of a little turbulence on the long hall flight it was rather smooth. The layovers didn't feel that long, thanks to having a decent book with me. I arrived in Malawi to 28C!

The arrival was more interesting than the flights though! Arriving at Chileka is always an experience - this time it took nearly 2 hours to get through the queue at Immigration. The standing around was exhausting - once I reached the desk, I was there all of 5 minutes and then could go and collect my luggage - I was even waved through by customs. Getting outside I found Gillian waiting on me.

The first few days in Malawi - have been a bit of a whirlwind, not really helped by breaking down at Liwonde yesterday and spending most of the afternoon waiting on help to arrive. At least it gave me a chance to get used to the temperature!
