Where can I get some chamba?

During the ride home yesterday we were talking about Malawian foods with our two nurses and the driver.

"Mmmmmm," I said, "I really want to try chamba. Where can I get some chamba?"

Long silence.

Chamba means marijuana. I meant chambo- a popular fish. Yeah.

  1. lol -- a common mistake for non chichewa speakers -- I love the 'Long silence' part --
    I wonder what was going on in each of the riders minds during the 'Long silence'? :)
