En route to the Lujeri Tea Estates in southern Malawi, where we'll spend two nights at a hilltop lodge.
These pink booths are sprinkled along the roadside. People can buy cards with minutes for their cell phones or charge their phones for a fee.
Most women carry a baby wrapped on their backs and something on top of their heads as they walk along the road. I was surprised at the thick, warm blankets many babies were wrapped up with. Sieglinde reminded me that it's moving into winter here. But still feels very warm to me.
We drove through some driving rain along the way. Some people carry umbrellas which provide shelter from the sun and are also handy when a squall comes up suddenly.
