Day 36: a short day into Lilongwe.
After our amazing evening at the Duck Inn, I woke up early and took one of the paddle boats out onto the water for sunrise, to take some photos. The water was still and flat. There was some cloud cover so the sunrise wasn’t perfect but the still water reflected the clouds and colourful sky and still made from some decent photography. We packed up and took a gentle 50km ride into Lilongwe, the capital of Malawi. Derrick’s dad does some business in Malawi and one of his suppliers had offered to put out team up in the Capital Hotel in the city. Sweaty, dusty and still wearing lycra we arrived and checked into the four star hotel. We spent the day showering and relaxing before heading out for dinner. Kathmandoo (named by someone that had probably not been Kathmandu), was a Nepali restaurant which was recommended by the owner of the Duck Inn - and despite being a bit pricey was excellent. After the time I spent in Nepal I can say that the food, was authentic and as good as some of the Nepali food I ate while I was there. After dinner, Derrick, Bryan and myself headed to “Living Room” a local nightclub for a few more drinks and a dance before getting home (and into a bed) around 1am. A decent, and decadent day!
