Sometimes it felt like we had traveled back in time about 100 years. And then we would see a big cell tower and come back to the future. There were fields and fields of maize that were all plowed and planted by hand. The only tool I saw was a hoe. There was not a single stretch in Malawi where there weren't people walking or riding a bike along the road. Non stop pedestrians for hundreds of kilometers.
The guys on the bikes carry huge loads which are very heavy as you can imagine. These guys are packing charcoal which is how everyone does their cooking.
I counted 35 people get into this van. I'm not kidding and it was probably 90 degrees outside so I'm pretty sure it was about 150 degrees inside the van.
