Hello Lilongwe

In the morning I tested the rear tire and found that the mend was not holding, so Hussain and I removed the tire from the rim and patched it from the inside, and then put it back on the rim. Ali took the tire into town to seat the tire with a burst of air from a big compressor at the local repaire shop. We left the hotel by 10 am and continued along the costal route with the view of the lake to one side and the green hills most of the way.

When we reached Lilongwe about 3 PM we noticed that Hussain was not responding when talked to on the CB radio. It turned out that he no longer can hear nor talk to us, most likely due to a kink in the cable. Tomorrow Ali will get a multi meter from town to try to fix the wire.Before dinner Ali discovered that his laptop was covered with ants. He got the bag cleaned and then opened the laptop that was not working and we found even more ants inside the laptop which have hitchhiked from Nkhata Bay inside the laptop.


  1. one picks up nails, the other ants what next?? Bu Ali stay away from wild cats & baboons or even worse hippos ;)
    God be with you all

    Good morning all. I am saying this because it is 3 45 am in Madrid. Wonderful to see you are progressing and that you are so close to your final destination( Masha-Allah). How is your weights? I 'll bit you need some beefing up once you return to Kuwait.On a different note, there is a little country on your left hand side as you are heading south called (Swaziland). Their King lives in heaven( from male prospective) as he selects the most beautiful girl among hundreds of topless girls that dance in front of him during an annual event. I think if you go there Bu Ali and Bu Hassan glasses will steam up. Have a safe journey and may God be with you all along. Wish to read your comments on places that you pass through. Take care
