Thanksgiving Zambia 2007 - clockwise from left, representing Zambia, Kentucky, Denmark, Massachusetts, Sweden, Finland and Germany.
I am still chilling in Livingstone after everyone else has gone.  We had a blast of a Thanksgiving dinner at the hostel and I tried my hand at green bean casserole without the benefit of an oven.  It wasn’t pretty but it was tasty.  We hosted six gentlemen, a sort of UN of sorts, including two Zambians, and then a quartet from Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Germany.  We also drank a lot, danced ridiculously, and made the staff wonder just what kind of holiday is this American Thanksgiving?

After a few days of recovering, the girls left Sunday, heading their way to Nairobi to catch a flight early next month, and everyone else this way and that.  I am in no particular hurry, which is basically how the entire country of Zambia is anyway.

  I decided to wait for the Wednesday bus to Windhoek, Namibia, and in the meantime hand-wash all my clothes at the hostel and power through some books.  Unfortunately someone liked my black bra, which went missing within just a few hours of hanging it out to dry.  I’ve put out inquiries but no one seems as concerned as I am.  I’ve taken to sizing up some of the women hanging around but I fear this is futile.  The loss of one bra and two pairs of socks (back in Romania) ain’t bad for going on six months of travel.  Yes, it’s close to that mark already. It surely doesn’t seem that long.  I’m over halfway through my budget, though, so I’m not sure I’ll make another six months, but I’ll give it a go and see where I end up.

Happy Thanksgiving Chris! Just tell them that Thanksgiving is the best holiday because all you are suppose to do is eat, drink and have fun.
