Baby ChiChi

I learned how to hold a baby "Zambian style." My co-worker Charles and his wife just had their first little one and everyone calls him "Chi Chi." He is the sweetest little thing and I was proud to be the first white person he has ever seen. They live in a compound called "Chimwewe" where the government is busy putting in new water meters to make sure residents are paying enough for their water. Most folks living here survive off of less than $200 a month. Ridiculous.

It looks like you are having a wonderful time! It was so good to meet you while we were in Kenya. You brought a whole new level of excitement to our experience! Shut it! :) It looks like you are back into the swing of things there in Zambia. Although I wish you could have stayed and done the camp with us I am glad for the time we did have together. Keep up the great work you are doing there! I look forward to reading your blogs in the future.
