News from the Beach....and Korea!

-So as usual its been a little while since my last post.  Joy's Place in Mzuzu has been shot off like a fire cracker and we are having a lot of fun hosting guests both in the restaurant and hostel.  Thanks to everyone who has supported us in our first few months of operation it really has been a blast.

-Aquanuts Divers and the Maru Research Center are likewise busy.  We've had some great interns this year and I'd like to take this opportunity to welcome two upcoming interns.  Gift from Thailand will be arriving soon for three months and Danielle will be arriving in a few months time.  Both are university students keen to get their hands dirty doing some practical field research here at Kande and we look forward to hosting them and showing them the ropes.  We are also very excited about the possibility of publishing some of our research results with the help of a local Peace Corps volunteer.  Any efforts to spread the word on Lake Malawi's beautiful ecosystems are always welcome!.

-Also say hello to our newest Jack Russell Terrier, "Sweetie Pie" (or just "Pie" for short).  Below she is hanging out with her best friend and uncle Tank.

- And yes Joy and I are currently away from Malawi for a few weeks visiting family back in Joy's motherland of South Korea.  Its been 3 years since we've been back and we are looking forward to it!  Joy's is also going to be stuffing our bags to overflowing with Korean goodies for the restaurant.  Our baggage limit is not big, however, so stayed tuned for a rash of specials at Joy's when we get back none of which will last long!
