We have landed in Malawi safe and sound! The travel to Malawi went without too many hiccups. South African Air somehow left all our luggage in Jo'berg and it may catch up with us in a day or two. Until then, we are making do... after all, it is Africa! The group is offering all extras such as t-shirts and sweaters- not underwear!
To establish our connections to the African soil, several of the group participated in a short ceremony setting intentions. We sat on the ground, connecting ourselves to the earth and to each other. Some of the sista's brought and shared bits of personal earthly pieces, I presented my travel shamrock that Dorothy gave me before my first journey abroad with my mother many, many years ago.
Additionally, this morning, just as the sun was starting to brighten the sky, the call to prayer was signaling. It was a magical time to share the moment with the country, or at least the 20% of the people that were called to be up at that hour to pray.
Tonight, our group will be together as we have dinner at Sue's son's house. Sue will then join us for the rest of the journey. Looking for more stories to share as the days and journey continues.
