Jun 13, 2010 - Dreaming of Pelula

During a jumbled dream right before I woke up this morning, I saw the name "Pelula" written. A voice said, "Remember this: Pelula." And so I did. Since then a general search on the internet has given me very little information. Pelula is apparently a small village at the Northern tip of Malawi in the province of Niassa. Because there is so little about it I can conjecture that Pelula is small, most likely undeveloped and has a small population. It does however, lie on the Lago Niassa so Pelula could be a site for trading and fishing. With...

The snorkeling at nearby Kande Island was also excellent, as many colorful fish come...

Mar 27, 2008 - Liwonde - Cuamba

Acordamos as 6 da matina, como nao havia trem disponivel decidimos ir de “chapas” ate a fronteira. De Malawi e possivel cruzar-se para Mocambique em quatro pontos diferentes. Por ser mais proxima de Liwonde, nos acabamos cruzando por Entre-Lagos, que segundo o Lonely Planet e a menos adotada por mochileiros e com “pouco” transporte disponivel. Na primeira etapa seguimos de ate Snama. La ficamos a espera de uma caminhonete que pudesse nos levar ate Nayuchi uma vez que a estrada e de terra e as chapas nao conseguem passar. Por sermos...
