Malawi is my country of birth, when I was born it was still an English Colony – Nyasaland. A small country in Eastern-Southern Africa, for a large part a lake. Malawi does her name justice “The warm heart of Africa” a country with smiling friendly people. We lived in the South at the foot of Mulanje Mountain on a tea estate, many holidays were spent at lake Malawi. Most of these photographs have been scanned, taken with a analogue camera some years ago.

In October / November the main road in Mulanje is coloured brilliant red. Flamboyants at their best. In the tea gardens the whattles flower yellow and my favourite the jacarandas in mauve-purple.
Children in a small village near Mulanje, as you can see many Malawians are poor and malnutrition is a large problem.
