Malawi, tea and some family history

My wife's father spent his working life as a planter in the tropics. Much of his time was spent in Africa, latterly growing tea. His last position was as the Manager of the Satemwa Tea Estate in Malawi.

We were suprised to hear a reference to Satemwa in a radio broadcast this morning, and the following of some links through the miracle of t'internet led us to this clip

It was wonderful to see a place that we never saw in my wife's parent's lifetime, although it was such an important place for them.
