Zany psychiatrist

Shortly before I arrived here, one of the cell phone networks underwent a major rebranding, from Celtel to Zain. In a stroke of marketing genius, they chose a distinctive branding colour, and gave out free paint to anyone who asked, as well as the painters to splash it on. Paint being a bit of a luxury here, there were many takers, so the Zain purple (or is it pink?) has become The Colour of Malawi. Everywhere you go, you are reminded of Zain’s presence. And I have a shirt which is almost the same colour. (See if you can spot me camouflaged in one of the photo’s below. I’m in the photo with Sue, who visited as a guest lecturer in psychiatry in Zomba for a month.)
