Day 9 Trip to Rumphi January 25, 2011
In the hallway outside my room I hear Scott trying to explainto the lady that he needs washing done and has 5 shirts, socks and underwear....and it is a struggle. He finally succeeds and asks when they would be done, as he has clothes for 2 more days and that's it.......that's when I break out histarically. We are getting to know way to much of what was a complete stranger a little over a week ago.
We also met both boards (BOD) that we will be working with in this region. The expressed some of the concerns and problems they are facing which layed the pavement for our studies.
We walked up town had dinner at the Chef's Pride Restaurant (which we would visit frequently during our stay), and then I picked up 3 beer for 375 Kwacha which is about $2.00 Cdn.
In addition as we were walking around, we noticed several interesting shops, one of which was a local butcher (they have a few in town), and we talked to the butcher. We talked about how meat keeps in this heat along with what they do with the, for lack of better terms guts, and they said they use tham. As we are walking back to the room, Scott mentions that he thought the guts were referred to as Offals. Check what the specials were that night at the restaurant!!!
