I needed a vacation, and some quiet time. While it may be warm and beautiful in Malawi at this time of the year, I do not get much quiet time especially at Makupo where someone is soliciting or greeting or hanging out from early in the morning. At 5:30 this morning, it had stopped raining over night so I took a chair to the back of the house, out of sight of the construction going on next door and which had already started at this early hour with lots of hammering and thumping and sawing.
