Swimming  Posted on 12/12/2005
Muscle pushes against water, chlorinated limbs working their way from one end of the garden to the other. To my right, Venus, cupped by an Arabian sickle-moon. Left across the Prussian-blue sky glares Mars, hot orange. I lift my arm out of...

Conversation With A Housekeeper  Posted on 12/06/2005
It's good to laugh. Today I am amused by an advert in the local press. No, not one of those ones for a Dr Love Chinganyi, purveyor of herbal miracles for bad accounts and heartsick pains, all worries eased by traditional Congolese...

    Greetings, our mission organization has been working for several years in Harare and because of the political and economic situation, we are not able to continue with our plans to start a small bible college. We have been to Lake Kariba (Zim side) many times but have never been to the Zambia side. We were wondering about the town of Siavango-if there would be services and property such as a large warehouse or house to rent. Can you find a good used car in Lusaka for around $3,000USD? We have always flown into Harare but this time will probable fly into Lusaka. Any inside information would be greatly appreciated.
