It feels like a party on the beach on Lake Malawi. I think we are ready for a party.
Here is the drummer.
He is fantastic. I, Zeb the Duck, don’t think he ever stops playing. We love him. People are dancing.
The smiling children are joining the dancing.
We like many dancers. Everybody should try dancing on the beach to the beat of the drum.
If not dancing, many play on the beach of Lake Malawi, in Malawi.
These children love to have their pictures taken, or they really like to see their pictures.
Someone is leading the conga line.
This is fun. Of course, no party is complete without food. Esther cooks for us, using this three burner wood burning changu changu moto.
Deborah seemed to disappear for awhile. She was helping Esther. That was very nice to do. It is getting dark now; the drummer is stopping and the dancers are stopping. All the Ripple Africa volunteers, some of our Malawi friends and Ripple Africa employees gather for dinner. For dessert, a chocolate birthday cake is presented to Linda.
This cake was baked on a changu changu moto wood burning stove. And the cake is delicious. We are all happy that Linda has a birthday while in Malawi, and that she shared her cake. The humans and Zeb, the Colorado Traveling Duck, will always smile when remembering our farewell party. We will miss all our new friends at Ripple Africa. Once again, the people have shown us why Malawi is called the Warm Heart of Africa.
