In everyday life, I am geologist. It brings me sometimes to unexpected places. In May 2019 I went to Malawi for a mapping campaign. I stayed there for 3 weeks and a half, and discovered a very beautiful country. Following, you can see a few pictures from this memorable journey.
My good 4 wheel drive. At the back are the chongoni mountains (the summit is above 2000 m). these mountains are know for their old rock cave paintings
During that trip I was accompanied by two colleagues, James, to the right from the Geological Survey Dpt. in Malawi, and Ben to the left, for a few days, from the French Geological Survey.
The beautiful light at the end of the day
A breathtaking sky at the Namoni Katengeza training centre - This place was our basecamp for a week and a half
Let me introduce you Nkhoma hill. The summit is as high as 1600 m. This was my everyday -almost- view. Down the hill is Medson, our driver and the good 4 wheel drive of the projet.
At the river beware the crocodiles
Some villages, far far far, at the end of the road. The slopes of the background hills are very steep, but the villagers grow maize there
The maize flour is dried in the sun
Beautiful traditional houses
Moonrise at lake Malawi
Early in the morning, it is not very difficult to wake up to admire the sun rising up on lake Malawi. There we had our base camp for a week...
Some rocks and a nice hill
The last picture: Nkhoma hill from the back, still impressive. Thanks for following my trails in Malawi.
