Lake Malawi

Recently we went to Lake Malawi since we figured we couldn't come all the way to Malawi without seeing it.  Everyone always ask us if we have been to the Lake yet.  It was nice -- seemed like the ocean.   Lake Malawi has 1000 different kinds of fish in it and 700 of the species are found ONLY in Lake Malawi.  The favorite fish found there is Chambo and Chambo is only found here (in Lake Malawi and Shire River).  It is eaten a lot here and it is a nice tasting fish. Lake Malawi makes up about 1/3 of Malawi.  It is the 8th largest lake in the world.   Right now there are disputes about who owns most of the lake.  This is because they have found oil in it and now Tanzania wants more of it.  Currently they own a tiny bit of it and now want half.  :(
