Malawi 2000

My first trip to Africa was in march/april 2000. While putting photos on this site itīs almost 5 years ago, so my memories about this central african country are hazy. What I just remember that I was robbed straight away first day at the main bus station in Lilongwe. The rest of the trip was very pleasant and we saw many interesting places and met plenty of beautiful creatures. I`ve also seen plenty cetoniinae beetles, however had no good camera to snap them.
