The Association of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of Malawi (AOGM) had their annual conference October 25-27 at a resort on the shores of Lake Malawi, near Mangochi. I was excited to see Lake Malawi, which is widely regarded as a national treasure and has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The convention also gave me a chance to meet some of the other Ob/Gyn physicians who live in other parts of Malawi. Many of them gave presentations about their work during the AOGM convention. Here are some of my female colleagues, posing at the pool Saturday afternoon, after the work of the convention was done.
A small frog that showed up on my wall. I have geckos on my walls in Blantyre and was delighted to see a frog here.
Professor William Stones (far right) drove me and Kathy and Chris Beach back to Blantyre from the resort after the convention. To break up the drive, we stopped for lunch at ArtHouse, a restaurant run by an American ex-pat. The food was delicious!
