In Malawi

Hi all-

I am in Malawi now but just have a few minutes....

In brief....its beautiful...was just literally hiking through fields and mountains to help with a cardiovascular health assessment survey.

Ate Nsima which is traditional food and looks like an indian idli but bigger...

I got to the college of medicine today and it is interesting to be dorming and be a student again.

I have great rotary friends and they have been escorting me everywhere. Thursday I go to lunch there.

Unfortunately, I don't have my camera plug so I am going to write really once I get the photos because I wouldn't do the story justice without it.

Here are a few phrases that I picked up to tell your friends...

Muli Bwanje? (How are you?)
Ndiri Bwino.. (I'm good.)

Cha bwino (its good)

That's all for now. I promise more when I get a chance!

XO,
Aparna
