Lake Malawi is Breathtaking! I highly recommend this country if anyone ever want to go to visit Africa 🙂

Breathtaking Lake Malawi

I went Horseback riding from the forest, through the fish Village into Lake Malawi:)

rnSo Obviously my horse did not like the idea to Swim with Me! He threw me right into the water!!!!!rn

But at the end, I climbed right back and swam with him in Lake Malawi:)

He needed to dry himself in the sand afterward…can you believe a horse did this?

Well. you cannot expect more….a bed is what you need:P

My Ocean front view room at Lake Malawi

I stayed at one of the room(US$5/night) over looking the lake, and there were 5 rooms all together. My story began in here:P IF you check out the photos below, you will see how beautiful the lake was, but when you take a closer look, you will see some black shadow on top of the lake. There’s millions of Malawi Flies during the summer in Lake Malawi!!! YEA–FLIES!!!! Small one. They are attracted to light source at night, so when people go to the restaurant, they will fly over their food but local people actually EAT THEM because they are full of PROTEIN!!! Anyway, my first night there, I turned on the light and left my room for dinner. When I got back, I saw hundreds of Flies all over my room!!! I was screaming so loud!!!! Then there was an Australian guy started yelling at me and told me to SHUT UP!!! It was the funniest ever. He told me to turn the light off and pretended nothing happened; So I did and went straight to bed! Then someone started talking to me, and the next one joined. At the end, there were a total of 5 people all talking to each other and they are all from different countries around the world. Can you believe we could heard each other even the room was NOT right next to each other:P…Funny!! And the next day, when I woke up, I saw hundreds of Dead Malawi flies on my bed!! That mean I slept on every single on of them erwwwww!
