    Waay back in March which seems like eons ago, we went to Zambia for a month.

    Just after we landed we took a 12 hour drive out to Chipata which is in the Eastern province on the border with Malawi for my brother in law's memorial at the family farm.

    These are a few of the people I met there...

    Beautiful shots! Love the colours, and the snippets of daily life in Zambia that they show.




    (Glad you finally got around to posting! I was beginning to wonder if we'd ever see them)

    Very interesting. Lovely photos. How come you had a weekend for editing when I have insider's information that you had FIVE children over the weekend?? ;)

    And they are beautiful.
    The photos are perfect (of course) and the people are beautiful.
    Life can be soooooo different from what we're used to here in our "western world"!!!
    Christiane (aka LaFoto'sSister) has been to Malawi before. She also brought home lovely photos of beautiful people (but I think that was back in her film-only days).

    Busted! I actually edited them a couple of weeks ago, but didn't get around to putting them online - just made CD's for the people in SA and Zimbabwe, although I still have to finish them off - some of them seem to have a weird colour cast that needs sorting.

    And Friday night, we had six kids - not much space in any room that night!

    Taking a day off work today, got a nasty cold over the weekend and didn't sleep much last night.

    Thanks for the comments - more as and when! :thumbup:
