... but pretty close.
My stubby little shadow, at noon.
Malawi is situated on the 15th latitude, just below (if north is considered up that is) the equator. This means that the angle of the sun at mid day is pretty steep, but not quite overhead. I keep noticing the length of my shadow, beacuse it looks really silly! We are heading towards summer and wet season here, and it is getting HOT. Thankfully, it is still quite temperate in the shadow and indoors.
