Sorry for the lack of posts lately. I’ve been going crazy with reporting. I’m working on a story so exciting I won’t post about it here! (That’s exciting, no?) Unfortunately, it appears I won’t be able to get to a few of the stories I had planned — these weeks have zipped by. Anyway, more photos and deep insights into the Zambian soul to come soon.
