TdA Stage 57. Crossing into Malawi.

128km. Mbeya to Rice Field Camp.
Crossing from Tanzania into Malawi, I am struck again by the massive difference between one side of the border and the other. Based on the first few kilometres here, it appears that missionaries and aid workers have been here. The road is lined with children saying 'give me money', though these ones seem notably more friendly than the kids in Ethiopia. At least so far.
Tonight we are camping in a rice field. The first rule about camping in a rice field during the rainy season is that you should not sleep in a rice field during the rainy season. At least not in my tent.
