Zomba, Malawi


malawian-smoke.jpg  The trash hiatus continues through December 15th.  Until then, take a moment to appreciate your high speed Internet connection, a luxury not found here in Malawi.  Even though the colleague office I’m working from this week has a dedicated cable line, power or service cut out every few minutes.  I’m trying to remember how I sat still all day at my desk pre-Gchat.  My temporary office in Zomba is located in a residential neighborhood where taking out the trash means lighting small fires.  Lunch can be purchased for a few hundred kwacha from the woman cooking behind the house on the far right.  I miss you all, please continue to send in your trashy tips.  I shove off for Tanzania tomorrow and have high hopes for the Cyber Cafes in Dar!

Until then, please enjoy these vintage Malawian trash posts on elephant dung stationary and ruminations on zero waste.
