So today is the reason why we stayed two more nights... Big party, as everyone moving on, and Brian, American barman at mabuya's 21st.. Theme, pimps and hoes!!
So we started the day going to big local Market to try as source outfit... After lots of hassling and funny looks we decided to use out own stuff and just buy one thing. Tom brought baseball hat that looked more gangster than pimp, and I invested in a pink bandanna to wear under a cap I already have.
We then caught a bus to the wildlife sanctuary, perhaps the one think to actually go and see in Lilongwe! "better than safari" they said at the entrance... I didn't hold my breath. We saw several types of monkeys and baboons, crocodile/statue since they never once moved, leopard, small bush buck and a python. We waited around for the 330 tour (VIP tour) because they feed the animals so you see then close up. The enclosures are massive so you didn't see much unless they are hungry.. During the VIP tour we saw lioness up close which had arthritis, muscle failure and only one eye! And the main reason for me to go a hyena up close!! What an impressive beast it was too, big adult male. Looks so strong and aggressive real mean looking thing and apparently strongest jaws in animal kingdom!
On the walk home Tom tells me that to save money he has cancelled our dorm for the night and we will just party until morning!!!! I was not best pleased! But luckily the medical students we are friendly with offered us a place in their dorm because they leave at 430am... So all we needed to do was to stay up till then.......
So after our supper of peanut butter and bread again we started mixing with the 100plus people at camp.
The night soon flew by after some dipping in the pool, drinks and meeting loads of different people. Tonight for an unknown reason I was very good at pool and managed to beat 9people in a row before I got bored!!!! Ended up in pool for most of the night racing and whatnot. Tom vanished somewhere towards the end of the night....... So I ended up on the pool table playing game after game with Abi. I finally went back to dorm with Abi and as we walked through the door the alarm went off!! Good timing! So I helped them load bags into car, by which time Tom had appeared from a very dark bar.... We said our fair-wells and then slept very well indeed!!
