The littlest big city

Blantyre is supposedly Malawi’s biggest and busiest city.

There are two traffic lights in town.  There are cars.  A supermarket.  A bank.  A restaurant that serves pizza.  Most of which I have not been able to find elsewhere in Malawi.

And, yet, in many ways Blantyre is more like a village than a city.  I can walk around the city limits in about half an hour.  Nobody really abides by the traffic lights.  And the restaurant with pizza was closed when I stopped by.

There is not much to do here except wait for my visa for Mozambique to be processed.
