I went to Malawi in summer 2007 for a few months to get some experience working in an eye hospital, whilst I was studying to become an Optometrist.
It was an amazing place and it has a special place in my heart.
I only visited Lake Malawi for a few days as I was working in the Eye Hospital in Blantyre in the south of the country mostly. One weekend I took some time out to visit friends who lived on the lakeside. It is such a beautiful calm place where the locals live off the land and the fish from the lake.
