Brief foot shim

30 July  
Chitimba - Livingstonia - Chitimba
After four weeks of heavy arms and shoulder work it's a little confusing to present yourself with a long climb up switchback rubble road with scrambles up shortucts to climb to Livingstonia - old mission station with colonial buildings, shaded mountain forests, markets selling gas lighters (unavailable since Nkhotakota) and interesting museum, one label read "A slasher. In those days they used them to slash things".

Much more fun is the whopper waterfalls off the near vertical edge - great kif with mindblowing vista - fine example of why being on land isn't too bad after all.

Fully declared night reefing protocol allows either operator to light the candle and skin and wake the other AT ANY MOMENT. Glorious 5am number!

Rocket developing large absess at starboard stern - time is limited!
