We went and did our PADI Open Water scuba diving course at Lake Malawi. I have been wanting to do this for years so very happy to get to do it in Malawi and with friends.
Been back and forth to the city quit a bit at the moment due to this work but it has meant we have had Esther back out with us which has been really great.
This week though Molly and I have been in Lilongwe house sitting for someone who is away as they have two doggies!
At the end of month was the annual Mud Run weekend here at Kuti Wildlife Reserve. I don’t do running, so I was one of the photographers for the event...
Feeling all homely and settled again after last month. Even considering doing my PhD out here, which would mean staying longer, like 3 to 4 years longer.
For the most part I love being abroad, travelling and living a semi nomadic lifestyle but sometimes you just want to feel at home. I’m not quit Dorothy yet but sometimes I just wanna go home...
After a weeks of long nights bat surveying at Kuti, catching bats and training the new Team up, we went to Lilongwe again to sort some of the vehicle stuff out....
Christmas was a blast and we had a lovely day at Kuti Wildlife Reserve. We had a secret santa game with the gang and then for NYE we had a murder mystery theme dinner party.
The weekend just gone was so fun! We went to Lilongwe with the ABC Team and although basic in many a way the City does offer nicer foods, better wines and live music!
So the African Bat Conservation Team are all finally out of quarantine and I am free of malaria so finally time to get back on track at our new base and get out on some bat surveys!
