31st August 08

Date: 31st August 08
Location: Lilongwe Golf Club, Lilongwe, Malawi
Weather: Clear blue skies and sunshine. 35°c
Status: Very happy and a good day had by all.

Up at first light and routine seems to dictate these days, poor Rach had another bad nights sleep with belly problems and was up just before us. So a light breakfast before I started to do some work on the truck to keep everything ticking along nicely. Bonnet no longer rattles, and the new window gives the Colonel his security back!

Headed to the pool for a good swimming session to get some lengths completed in the murky water of the full sized pool. Excellent and I realise quite how much I miss my swimming in the UK. Note to self got back on it ASAP when I get home!

We would love to have played tennis but being a Sunday the courts were all full and the temperatures were so high anyway, so we put it off until tomorrow. It’s a fantastic location here for sports lovers with cricket, golf, swimming and tennis happening within a few metres of the campsite, I loved it!

Had a filling dinner of chicken and veg and caught up on the diary before heading to bed for an early night. We have a productive day ahead tomorrow trying to arrange a flight for Rach, smashing some tennis balls around and servicing the Colonel again to keep his heart purring well.

End of day location: Lilongwe, Malawi
Distance covered: 0kms
