Pedestrians: partner up and be patient

Though roads sometimes have crosswalks, drivers rarely pay attention to pedestrians (or to traffic lights, signs, or laws). You may stand at a street corner for eons before a chance to cross the road appears. I’ve taken to teaming up with other pedestrians, preferably assertive Malawians, and standing beside them as they budge into oncoming traffic. This is especially helpful at the many roundabouts — Malawians drive on the left, and cars seem to come from every direction. If you can’t find a fellow perambulator, practice patience. You’ll make it across eventually.
