So, we are flying to Lusaka over the Holidays and are staying for about five week. I can not emphasize enough how much I need this trip, this time of the year. And one thing I do when I am looking forward to something, I start preparing far ahead, maybe even too far ahead. This time it felt really necessary. We usually travel with Ethiopian … Continue reading 13 things to think of when packing for a longer trip
Hi after a long time! This is winter! Summer disappeared and so did I. Most of Autumn was spent working and reading and trying to catch as much sunshine as possible until the darkness arrived. I managed quite okay until the end of October when I got a cold and after that it has just continued being hard. This week I got a flare again … Continue reading Soon time for Holiday in Zambia

It has been long now since I reported from our life here in Zambia. It it not because nothing has happened, more that a lot is happening. Mayani started working at ELTEL in the beginning of September and since that day time has been moving like Mosi-o-tunya in rain season. He has long days since trafic takes almost an hour or more sometimes and he … Continue reading Thoughts about moving far, far away
