Rob Pfeiffer Blog: May 6th, 2016 Adjusting to Home

Posted by admin - May 9, 2016 - Go! Malawi News

The adjustment period goes on and I am quite surprised by the intensity. The central issues are consumption and complaining. As I reflect on the way people live in Malawi, it seems incredible how little consumption goes on day to day. They walk everywhere with a few bicycles thrown in and buy almost nothing as […]

Rob Pfeiffer Blog: 4/14/2016 Leaving Malawi

Posted by admin - April 15, 2016 - Go! Malawi News

It is time to pack up and I have just disassembled my bike and packed it in its carrying box. Now, I am deciding which of my tee shirts to give away to friends here. I am ashamed to admit that this is a difficult task. After a lifetime of collecting tee shirts in every […]

Rob Pfeiffer Blog: 4/13/2016 Cold Wet Weather

Posted by admin - April 15, 2016 - Go! Malawi News

The wet cold weather continues as do the fashion trends. Indistinguishable blobs hustling around everywhere. Thank goodness people in the US get rid of old winter garb as it sure comes in handy here for people who are acclimatized to heat. I do not know if the weather is to blame, but we are back […]

Posted by admin - April 13, 2016 - Go! Malawi News

We’re having a Nor’Easter. It is very difficult to see with the wind, fog and rain. There is a considerable wind chill as the damp cold here penetrates whatever you put on. My fashion report for the day is that to be in fashion you need to dress as though you were going skiing on […]

Posted by admin - April 13, 2016 - Go! Malawi News

April 9, 2016 For years I’ve read the works of learned scholars on the subject of crime. In my years as a counselor, crime in various forms has raised its somewhat ugly head from time to time. I’ve never been able to discern how “scholars” point to various social issues as causal when it comes […]

Rob Pfeiffer Blog: 4/7/2016 Lost on a Mountain in Malawi

Posted by admin - April 13, 2016 - Go! Malawi News

At about midnight on Saturday night, there was a group walking past my hut talking quietly but earnestly in Chichewa. The group consisted of approximately 15 people, both men and women. Usually, things are pretty quiet by that time of night. I arose Sunday morning to find that a huge search party was on the […]

Posted by admin - April 5, 2016 - Go! Malawi News

The sun is out and the air is clear and fresh after a wonderful overnight rain soaked everything. All the vegetation looks refreshed and an even brighter green than usual. My fears are allayed for the day at least, as the dry air and heat during the last few days had me fearful that rain […]

Rob Pfeiffer Blog: 4/1/2016 Potato Picking

Posted by admin - April 1, 2016 - Go! Malawi News

It’s potato picking time here as March and April translate to September and October here. (That is a loose translation mind you.) The potatoes here are about one quarter the size of ours at home. A good Kennebec might weigh in at two or three pounds. These puny little fellows are lucky if they weigh […]
