Life in Malawi is so normal for me now that I often forget that it’s so different from what my life used to be when we lived in America 10 years ago. Here are a few normal parts of today.
The bugs are different:
And so are the slugs. Well, they might be the same, but I don’t remember seeing slugs in America!
The bike taxis are not only different, they made me learn a new style of driving: the stop-and-go-swerve style.
The overloaded semi-trucks do feel normal now, but they don’t feel “right.” I still feel like they’re going to tip over and squash me whenever they drive by!
I’m pretty sure this one didn’t squash anyone, but it doesn’t raise my confidence level.
And having kids is a new normal for me. I haven’t spent any significant time raising kids in America, but I do know that I love raising kids in Malawi. I’m glad it’s our “normal!”
What “normal” parts of our life would you be interested to see? Let me know in the comments!
