Livingstonia (0238)

Livingstonia became the main site of missionary activity after many missionaries died of Malaria in Bandaweh. There is a small museum with original handwritings and pictures of Livingstone. The village was also the first one in Africa to get a watch tower and to get electricity. It must have been a tremendous logisitical task to bring the material from Europe to this mountain top in th 19th century.
