We arrived! Actually, we arrived almost exactly five weeks ago. We have been very busy so have not had any time to even reflect on arriving. I am still in the phase were I am realizing that we are staying here, and are not only here on vacation. I keep looking at my weather app (Swedes, you know what I am talking about), and thinking … Continue reading Lusaka we are in (and the first month has been hectic)
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
This with blogging can be a hustle sometimes, or I make it a hustle most of the times. When I was moving photos from Mayanis computer to the new harddrive I got, I found a folder with all the photos from the posts I made on the previous Jennychangala.com. What happened when I lost it was that I self hosted it with Bluehost, but when … Continue reading Treasures on the hard drive

When Mayani needs to fix something and he has looked in all the building stores closer to home he goes down to the markets in CBD Lusaka to search. He almost always comes back with what he was looking for. I am telling you, you can find strange but very useful things that side. I don´t always come along, just the traffic is a hustle … Continue reading Treasure hunting down town Lusaka

But about now we have reach the fun state of creating a … Continue reading When creating a home…
After a way too long break I am back at the gym and in my fitness mode again. The beginning of 2016 was a bit rough on me and life in general but have a good feeling for the next quarter. We love life here in Zambia and have adjusted and gotten used to most of it. Mayani is working on site three weeks at … Continue reading Back in the gym again!
Happy birthday my dear little girl! Can really not believe that it is already two years since you came into our life under very stressful circumstances. You have never ever shown any signs though of being affected by that. Born 4 weeks early and left with your very proud grand mother after only 48 hours while I got treatment on another hospital. You are strong, … Continue reading Sylvia 2 years!
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
