Good Friday

We had a four day weekend for Easter. On Good Friday I was sitting the lodge and heard singing. So I ran out to the street (which is maybe 80 meters away) and there is a huge crowd of a few hundred people passing by and singing.

This is the tail end of the group

See how far the group goes? It goes farther!

I have a video but the Malawian internet has decided they don't want to let me upload it. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to take a video but no one stopped me...They had at least one police officer with them.

They stopped at the bottom of the hill where someone had set up speakers and they all started to pray and repeat what was being said through the speakers. Well I think they were praying I couldn't actually understand anything. More and more people joined the group - they either walked or hopped off trucks.

The is the back of the group praying...uhh I hope this wasn't disrespectful.

Malawi has a Pacific Mall, though not quite as large as the one in Toronto...

So far this woman is winning for most inconvenient thing balanced on head. What she's carrying looks like it could be twice her height!
