Marissa spent three weeks in Malawi this March, 2011 working with Dsenyo's producer groups on new designs. She is posting a series of "Trip Reports" here on her blog to give you an inside look at her travels.
Here are some of my favorite Malawian names:
It's really hard not to enjoy the people here. Names like these just automatically put a smile on your face, plus when they are coupled with such hospitality and great attitudes I feel so welcome. I really love this country and it's people. It is a second home which I am reminded of each time I visit our group at Ndiwasa Village where they welcome me to the house I stay at and say this is your home, you are our daughter, welcome back!
