A note on all of the tire repair work we have seen in the past few days! A nice hydraulic changer like we have in the states is unheard of!! First the tire bead is loosened on both sides, using a tire tool and hammer. Then a pry bar is and hammer are used to remove the tire from the rim. When they roughed up the interior surface of the tire for the patch, they used a pop bottle cap! Once the tire is back on the rim, they use a bicycle air pump to pump air into the tire. Cal has never seen them use a tire tester to check the air pressure, plus, none of the tires were ever balanced.

We arrived at our lodge along Lake Malawi at 10:18, ready to crash. The people from the lodge met us and helped us to our rooms where we had a quick shower and turned in for the night. This is the first time we have ever had to sleep with a mosquito netting over our bed. It was a warm night and the netting did not make anything cooler! We survived the night, but not as comfortably as we would have preferred.
