Travelled a lot in 2007
I thank the lord for giving me the means to travel and see places that i never dreamed I would see in my live.
Even though I mostly stay and work in Malawi I do go out of the country a bit more than other people do;and I am grateful for that.Almost all my trips are work related;but they still make me see places.
The year 2007 has particularly been good to me;here are the places I ended up and the months.
January 2007 was all spent in Malawi.
February 2007 I was in Johannesburg South Africa for 2 days (stayed at uncle Charles Keza place),then went to London for two weeks and also visited Manchester ,UK where I was hosted a dinner party at a very nice place .
March 2007 I was in Zanzibar for one week and then Durban South Africa for another week.
April I was in Egypt for a week seeing the pyramids.(see picture)
May I was in Daresaalam , Arusha and Moshi Tanzania-visited Kilimanjaro mountains
June took me to Mozambique(Maputo,Nampura and Nacala) see picture
July I was in Germany with my postgraduate student Dr Tamara Chirambo (see picture).dont forget I am also a lecturer at College of medicine so this was an academic exchange visit .
August-I was in Nairobi a-Kenya and then Moshi Tanzania ( i missed my flight in Nairobi and spent a night there)
September -Preparing for my Uk trip (I had visiting student from University of Waterloo Canada) so i had to be around.
October -Back to London England and Manchester
Not bad.I think all these trips are possible because I am based in Malawi.
In 2006 I visited Switzerland and Germany .
in 2008 I am going to India,Argentina and USA.
For the young doctors in Medical school if you want to travel extensively specialise in my field.
For the rest non medical fields;look for opportunities within your area.
Now you know why i cant abondon to leave in Malawi for good.
Opportunites for travel in 2008 include so far a trip to Indian in January,trip to Switzerland in April,trip to china in May,trip to USA in June ,trip to Argentina in August and many trips between Malawi and London.
