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)
Words from in the middle of the packing and move out of our apartment (have not left Sweden yet), some time back, was to tired afterwards to even post it: “I just sat down in the sofa after putting on the dish washer and connecting my phone to our bluetooth speaker. The sofa, the tv, a kitchen table and a small chaise is all that … Continue reading Moving from Sweden to Zambia

Having a leader with that much power being able to say so many … Continue reading Weekend at The Changalas

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.
