When In Rome ...
One of the highlights of visiting another country is getting a chance to meet the kids. Totally loved every moment I got to play and dance and sing with these awesome children. No trouble understanding each other here. We all smile in the same language.

Hi Mrs White! The class and I are curious about the common sports that are played in Malawi. Oh yes...and what forms of transportation are used to get to and from school? Do most kids walk or possibly ride a bike? Are the subjects similar to the ones in Canada? Do any stand out as being quite different? Thanks and we are looking forward to your next post :)

I think the most common sport is soccer - called "football" in Malawi. I saw a lot of soccer fields set up in clearings along the road with kids playing using rocks as goal posts and balls made out of plastic bags wrapped into a ball and tied with string or vine. Some kids had "real" soccer balls but that was a rarity to see.
