Air Malawi has announced it’s going to resume flights to Mzuzu. I can’t wait. At the moment, the only way to get from where I am in Mzuzu to Blantyre, the financial centre of Malawi – which is where I do all my business/interviews – is a gruelling 18-hour overnight bus ride, which manages, paradoxically enough, to hurtle down the road at a terrifying pace, but taking an inordinate amount of time to cover a relatively small distance. In hindsight, it was probably a bit of a mistake to decide to live 700km from where I work in one of the least developed countries in the world, where the roads are more pockmarked than a fast food worker’s forehead.
