Schalk riding through Malawi At the Zobue border I crossed into Malawi and all the border officials were very friendly. On May 25th it was my sixty fifth birthday! The Mushroom camp only specialised in vegetarian dishes and that was the one day that I wanted to eat steak. The Lukwe Eco Lodge. I told them that they could take as long as they wanted to prepare the meal while I relaxed and enjoyed the view from the swinging bench on the edge of the timber deck. By twelve forty five the food was ready and i enjoyed the steak with rice and salad. It was a real treat in the middle of Africa.
