I Made it to Lusaka #ZambiaHealth


Landed

After 21 long hours of flying across the world I am finally here in Lusaka, Zambia. As we landed I could feel a sudden happiness engulf me of being back in Africa. It’s so peaceful flying in and seeing nothing but land for miles and miles and miles. I think that’s what makes Africa so unique – how very expansive it is.

I met with some of the fellows at the airport and now we’re at the hotel. Some of the others had flight delays and another fellow’s flight was completely cancelled out of Cairo. We will see her tomorrow. Hopefully she can get a flight out given the circumstances in Egypt right now.

Tonight is dedicated to getting to know everyone and then tomorrow the site visits start.

More then!

I am traveling to Zambia as an International Reporting Project Zambia Fellow. The International Reporting Project is a part of  The Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies. I will be reporting on HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis and how these three infectious diseases acutely affect mothers and children. You can follow our journey for the next 11 days at #ZambiaHealth.
