Five Random Things about Malawi

  • The national football (soccer) game is called the Flames. A new stadium is being built for them in Lilongwe.
  •  The entire country is about the size of Pennsylvania. It feels much smaller.
  •  Potholes seem to get fixed at night, presumably for the least amount of traffic disruption. I’ve only once seen a pothole squad during the day, and it was in the rain (?). No ideas.
  • When there is a funeral or traffic disruption, branches are placed across one part of the road as a warning to slowdown.
  •  A hyena was recently spotted in the poshest neighborhood of Lilongwe. A hyena!~ In a city~!
