Africa Is Where My Heart Lies...

I can't describe the excitement I felt when I went through the slide show on Lake Malawi on The New York Times Style magazine yesterday. Was reminded of the day when flying down from Lusaka to Bombay that day in March 1987, when I gazed at wonder at the distinctive shape of the northern tip of Lake Malawi from a height of 35,000 feet - it was an awesome sight.
And yes the slide show of on Lake Malawi confirmed what I always thought - Lake Malawi is indeed beautiful.
But its not only Lake Malawi that is beautiful - the entire southern Africa is. I can never forget rolling savanna grasslands with the typical trees, the anthills, the clear waters of the rivers, etc. etc.
And the colourful culture - tribal customs, colourful clothes, soulful music and gleeful faces.
Nothing describes my feeling more truely than "Mama Africa" Miriam Makeba's song "Africa Is Where My Heart Lies..."
