Driving around Malawi we saw an amazing morning commute. Here is just a small sampling of life on the road in the morning. By the way, the air is clear....not so many exhaust fumes. People who are commuting are very fit, but I guess life here is sometimes survival of the fittest. That said, if you smile and wave, you will almost always get a beautiful smile in return.....people here are friendly and for the most part, happy.
|A bike-load of baskets...just try to pass a load like that when a car is in the other lane! Those yellow flowering trees on the side are Elder Louthan's favorite!|
|Hauling by ox-cart.|
|Everyone has something to take to the market....some walk miles and miles.|
|His load of sticks is taller than he is.|
|Loads of charcoal, to sell for cooking stoves, a sack on one end and mesh on the other to hold in the charcoal. It is for sale all along the roadways.|
|He has a passenger, so he qualifies for the commuter lane! Notice the passenger sits side saddle.....amazing!|
|A boy with the family cattle. A common sight along the road.|
|A load of brush or thatch maybe.|
|Another load of brush.|
Malawi in the Fall!
