Doing Some Business

Chief comes early in the morning to collect us and take us back to the project. But in Africa there is no such thing as a journey from A to B. It will inevitably meander and along the way business must be done. While Chief is attending to business we decide to buy new Zambian SIM cards for our mobiles. Despite our phones being from the UK they are able to unlock them here and away we go. Impressive.

The journey to the project is long and dull. We make a stop at Shoprite in Kabwe to pick up some groceries. The queues at the bread counter put Russia in the bad old days to shame.
