Malawi charm

It was a tired group of riders that headed off from our bush camp this morning, taking down wet tents and fighting off wind gusts as the sun fought to make a dent in the thick cloud that had covered the campsite. What lay ahead was supposed to be 130km of rolling hills and another bush campsite (actually another soccer field and another thousand children) but thanks to Miles and Jack, we are now staying in the village of Kasunga, camped on the grounds of the Kasunga Inn. The entire group was in camp by 1.30pm today, a pleasant surprise for them! Not only was the day short (racers were in at 10am!!) but the the bad weather held off, we are not on a soccer field surrounded by a thousand giggling, screaming children and those “rolling hills”, well they didn’t really appear, so the riders were able to enjoy a fairly flat ride today and give their weary legs a rest. This afternoon they were able to give their weary bodies a rest too and enjoy some ice cream and yogurt, compliments of the Kasunga shopping district; a vibrant, busy little town with friendly locals and too many buses! The landscape today looked as though it was a painting. Malawi certainly has turned on its charm for the tour.
