Wrapping up against the cold this morning I cannot believe that last week I was still in a place 40 degrees hotter! More from Malawian villages; talking to @shanewinser I found the process of asking to and taking someone’s photo in Malawi, fascinating. Firstly, unlike many places I have been, Malawians love to have their photo taken if you ask politely, wanting not much more than to see their photo on the screen afterwards (next time I would love to take a small printer with me to give something back). While children were all giggles and smiles I found the adults much more poised and reserved. Seeing this man writing away in the shade of his porch I approached; me all smiles, he all smiles. I raise the camera, he strikes a pose, face serious, eyes intently gazing into the lens. I take the picture, I show it to him, we are both all smiles and affable handshakes again. I found this metamorphosis fascinating. Again huge thanks to @earthwatch for the opportunity and @africanparksnetwork for all the fantastic work you do in Majete but mostly to the wonderful people of Malawi for making me so welcome.
