My best Canadian friends, Ben and Erica have recently arrived in Malawi. They are here to help me explore all of what our land has to offer paragliders and also to help me find the best place to build my paragliding school, The School of Dreams.

We are in the Mount Mulanje area right now and internet access is difficult, but we will share with you friends as much as we can.

The School of Dreams team has landed in Malawi after a beautiful afternoon flight from the Mulanje Massif you can see in the background.

Many of these youth are seeing paragliders for the first time and are so thrilled that they will follow you for an hour or two, all the way to the market, and back again.

Off to a market on father’s bicycle.

Being small and short, kids in Malawi are not able to ride these machines on the crossbar and use the saddle on top. Nonetheless, they are able to peddle an adult bicycle by pushing their legs between the three bars.

During the learning process, they encourage each other with the story of a determined ant which swallowed a Banana Bread. ‘If it did it, we can do it too!’ they say :). G

Children expressing their joy after my landing.

No matter where I land, they always come to greet me and ask if I need any of their help. I'm always grateful for their support and generous spirits not to mention their welcoming smiles which melt my heart :). G
