Malawi – Democratic Progressive Party. Locally known as Diesel, Petrol, Paraffin.
Back from Zambia, and the country of Malawi is in a national diesel crisis today. There are long queues at gas stations that don’t even have gas. Word on the street is that suppliers haven’t gotten paid yet diesel supply has been cut off. We have fuel for another day but it will be up to our driver’s bribery skills to get more gas. They are driving to Zambia tonight in hopes to get some more.
I really hope we make it out.
In other news, I’ve only got a few more days in Malawi and then it’s off to Seoul. Much to write about.
