Expo 1: On Our Way
Lusaka Travel Blog› entry 7 of 16 › view all entries
The first night was spent just out of Lusaka, at a game camp called Eureka. We set up camp and went into the city for a few last minute runs and a proper meal (Yay!), and returned to find a dozen or so identical tents put up around our three.
Friday night at Chipata, pasta with tomato sauce - yum yum...
Saturday we crossed the border into Malawi and spent the night in Blantyre at the lovely Fisherman's Rest.
Sunday we arrived in the steamy city of Nsanje, to the mission house with Pr. Rodgers and his family. After spending the rest of Sunday working on our sermons, we went out Monday and preached to crowds as we trecked between the huts. It was a lot of fun, and fueled us for preaching on the mountain. We were also formally introduced to the crowds of children that are so characteristic of expedition one. We were swarmed while preaching, even sitting inside they would gather out front to call in to us, and washing clothes was the event of a lifetime! I can't believe how many kids would gather and be so entertained by us washing our underwear... We ended up playing "What time is it, Mr. Lion?" with them, for as long as we could bear in the heat. Nsanje was also our introduction to the long drop and bucket showers, which we'd be enjoying for the next couple of weeks.
