I read that lavender was going to be good to try to chase the mosquitoes since they don´t like the smell of it. I planted bushes around the house and then took some inside on the tables to make them not like being there either. //Jenny Continue reading Trying to beat the mosquitoes

In the beginning we did not even have running water and we have still not put a warm water geyser, I am still getting hot and enjoying a cold shower most of the days. 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!
Soon we have lived in Lusaka, Zambia, for a year! Exclamation mark for sure because time just flies. It takes time to settle in, find schools, jobs and where to buy your food but to make a longer story short, we like it here. Zambia is warm, kind and colourful! Almost every day I see something that I have not seen before, a color shift … Continue reading Fashion in Zambia (I am back)

The lake is built as a cooperation … Continue reading Lake Kariba and Siavonga

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.

He has long days since trafic takes almost an hour or more sometimes and he … Continue reading Thoughts about moving far, far away

Time moves very quick even here in Lusaka. So quick that I hardly find time to blog. My Nexus phone is now working though and it is easier to blog from. Am trying MTN as a internet provider on this one and will compare if it is better than Airtel. The whole internet and mobile data provider is a story in itself that I am … Continue reading Load shedding and flu season
Today it is actual winter. Colder than I thought it would ever be here in Zambia. Good thing is it only last for some days. Not months like in Sweden. Otherwise we are settling in quite well. Alice has started a school near by our home and she seams to like it. She has been performing with her ballet class at the mall and they … Continue reading Actual winter
