Sapitwa- "Do Not Go There"

Sapitwa is a Chichewa word for "do not go there." It is also the name of the tallest peak on Mulanje Mountain in Malawi. Sapitwa may be the third tallest mountain in Africa- I'm not sure- I know it is the longest and steepest I've ever walked downhill and my knees can tell you if you want to speak with them sometime.

Pete and Regan near the peak

Regan and me at the lightening rod- that also marks the peak- multipurpose.

First lunch on peak day- Beans and cheese sandwich. I projectile vomited later that night from the railing right behind me- bad water.
