The last days in Malawi have started. My stay in Malawi is almost over and there’s not even two whole weeks left with the project. Time has passed so fast and I would love to stay longer. At the same time, of course, I am also looking forward to going back home.
As I have mentioned in my penultimate blogpost, I have worked out a tourist program over the past few weeks. By doing so, we want to give interested people the opportunity to spend a day with our women in the project and see where Taste of Malawi’s products come from and how they are produced. We have now decided that we want to offer a half-day tour, which includes a tour around the project and cooking and dining together with the women. In addition, our visitors have the opportunity to tailor their own products with the women, which they can take home later.
To use the last few days in the best possible way, Linus and I have now started to distribute flyers and posters. The response was very good so far and everyone was enthusiastic about our project. Half of Lilongwe is now paved with Taste of Malawi posters and you can find us in various hotels, the tourist information center and even in the golf club!
But of course, that’s not enough for us, since tourists are not just found in Lilongwe. That’s why we have now made our way to Mzuzu and Nkhata Bay in northern Malawi. On Saturday morning we took the Sososo Coach at 7 o’clock to Mzuzu. Five hours later we arrived and were able to take a minibus towards Nkhata Bay. Nkhata Bay is really beautiful and definitely worth a visit! There are two cool lodges on the hillside, which are aimed primarily at younger travellers and backpackers. Their owners were also very interested in our project and we were allowed to put up posters and distribute flyers.
On the way back to Lilongwe we spent two nights in Mzuzu in the Lodge with the coolest name ever – the Mzoozoozoo Lodge! We left our flyers and posters there, too. Now the first step is done and we hope for positive feedback and many visitors!
Meanwhile, we are back in Lilongwe and looking forward to our South Africa vacation, which starts in about one week time.Zurück zur ÜbersichtBack to overview
