Wandering in Malawi

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 the 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.

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.

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

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...

The last picture: Nkhoma hill from the back, still impressive. Thanks for following my trails in Malawi.
