After our 1st night in Lilongwe, we went to Stesi's village for a few days. It was really great. Nice and relaxing and just us...no host family or keeping up appearances (like having to wear a skirt in public). It was a great start to an awesome visit!
Chitenje's are great, and like a bucket, quite multifunctional! They're most popularly used as a wrap skirt by almost all women, as Stesi is demonstrating above. But they're also used as a towel, table cloth, lid, light blanket, curtain, etc.
You can also see hanging on the wall a world map - another item that probably all PCVs have hanging in their room/house somewhere!
The door to the left of the map goes to Stesi's bedroom.
And looking through the doorway is Miss Stesi standing in her hallway/kitchen cupboard.
