Lusaka, Zambia is our new home town and we are really enjoying it!
It is still an Africa town, full of Africa customs and practices,
but it has some modern conveniences that make life a little more fun.
|This little gem is where I can get a deluxe pedicure every few months for $15!!|
|The traffic is a bit of a pain.|
We have figured out the times of day to not venture out,
but every once in a while we have no choice!
|There are some lovely, clean residential streets.|
|And this is the hospital that Lee stayed in for 4 days.|
|Of course, being the capital city, we have a mixture of religions.|
This is a big mosque.
|Here is a small road heading into a neighborhood.|
|Many, many nationals still use charcoal to cook with.|
This is a large charcoal holding area.
People will come here and buy bags and take them further out
into the neighborhoods and sell them for a profit.
|Traditional medicine it HUGE in Zambia.|
|This is another Traditional healer hut.|
|This is a street "downtown".|
|This is a dried fish market.|
|And, across the street is beans, rice, and other necessary stuff.|
|In the same area downtown you can get used clothes and shoes from the states.|
|Like everywhere else in Africa, we have vans that are the primary mode of public transportation.|
|Here is a van that belongs to "Prince Emma"....we laugh!|
|While you wait at traffic lights, you can shop for clothing.|
Need a jersey?
|Remember the charcoal?|
Here men are moving it through a major intersection on these carts.
|It wouldn't be Africa without many soccer fields|
|People still carry things on their heads.|
That is our new hometown.
It is working out pretty well for us.
Why not come for a visit?
We would love to have you.
|Here we are at Game, a store owned by Walmart. It has a Walmart feel.|
But, every time I have been in there lately I see rats running around.
We are still in Africa!
