Happy holidays friends and family!!
We hope you are all having wonderful times together. We had a lovely day celebrating Christmas here in Malawi :] Fun fact: About 80% of Malawians celebrate Christmas.
The day began as most Christmas days begin.. blasting the Christmas music!! It was the first day that most of us slept in past 8am. We were up for relaxing. The humid and warm weather plus the lack of electricity made it strange to know it was Christmas, but the music lit our spirits.
We had a relaxing morning and afternoon listening to music, playing games, and watching the movie Lone Ranger.
Our next holiday adventure: American football!
The hotel manager alerted us that he was putting diesel fuel into the generator, so we could cook our holiday dinner – yum, yum, yum! We had some fun in the kitchen :] We learned that Cate is a fruit ninja in disguise.
After 20 minutes or so of cooking, the electricity flickered out. The manager was so determined to give us electricity to cook, that he converted his internet minutes into electricity for us! We don’t know how that worked, but were very appreciative of the kind act.
The day was full of laughter and good company! We are all very joyful here in Malawi! It was a holiday to remember :]
