Sanitary conditions in Malawi leave much to be desired — particularly when nature calls. Though you can usually find a flush toilet in urban areas (in rural settings, expect to squat on your haunches over a hole in the ground), bathrooms often lack toilet paper, soap, or sinks. I now carry wet wipes and toilet paper with me (Charmin’ To Go is particularly handy). Some expats scoff at hand sanitizer, but after your fingers are sticky with mango pulp or grubby after handling tattered, dusty money bills, you might find yourself grateful for that bottle of Purel.
