The new look and other stuff.

-So I'm getting close to the point where I will integrate this blog into the website for the research center we are starting. The new look will match that website better.

-check out this podcast with the Dean of the college of Social Science at the University of Malawi, Dr. Wapu Mulwafu, during which he talks about the social history of water in Malawi and the current challenges to doing research in the country.

- I just ordered "Venture into the Interior" by Laurens Van Der Post. Apparently it was wildly popular when first published back in 1952. The book charts Lauren's travels in Malawi, particularly Mt. Mulanje and the Nyika plateau. Historians aren't a big fan of his work nonetheless
