In less than a week I’ll be en route to Zambia for the long awaited 3 month expedition, and I can’t wait! To be honest, after planning for this trip over the last 6 months, it seems a little surreal that it’s so close. The plan is to arrive in Lusaka (the capital of Zambia) on Saturday morning, and spend a few days getting things together before taking an 8 hour bus ride to Mpulungu, on the lake. I’ll be buying a phone while in Lusaka, I’m not sure exactly how phone calls and texts will work there, but if you want that information when I have it let me know.
The high temperature for tomorrow in Mpulungu is 73 degrees F (23 degrees C), which will be a stark contrast to the snowy drive I had in today. Once there, I’m sure I’ll have tons of interesting things to write about, but in the meantime all I can tell you about is my decision making process in selecting ear drops, or how happy I am my income tax paperwork arrived before I left, so I’ll spare you.
