Done done done...
I am at my parents house in Solwezi Zambia and that is the end of the road for me. I'm done. There are so many blog posts that I want to write still so I'll try to post them all. Maybe once a day for a five weeks.
Also I was wrong in the last post when I said there are no surprises in Zambia.
I took the back roads through Zambia. Parts of it were sandy sweaty work. The worst sand was from Mongu to Usha where I had to drag my bike through sand for around seven hours. It was well after dark when I finally reached a Luvale village and decided to stop for the night.
The lady there handed me a drink but under my flash light it looked pretty murky. I try be careful about not drinking murky water but the lady insisted, so I took a sip. It was a mabula fruit juice. I have never heard of that before. So cool and good.
Zambia has been full of pleasant surprises.
