I had just driven back from dusty Dedza Friday morning, and arriving at Nkhoma the heavens opened for the whole afternoon and most of the evening. The first rains of the season. It’s still 3-4 weeks earlier than usual. Fantastic to see an entire storm system from my house across the valley, slowly move closer, then engulf the house and village in rain and thunder and lightning; to then move on and leave crystal blue skies and finally quench the parched earth. Very sunny now on Saturday morning as I walk into hospital to see a few patients. Lucky really as it’s busy market day in the village and the sun guarantees good trade.
