Flying Over Zambia

Flying Over Zambia

In order to get from Livingstone where we stayed a day after visiting the Macha Malaria Research Institute to Lusaka, the capital of Zambia, in a relatively short time we flew. If there are two things I love to do in Africa it’s this: take a road trip through the rural areas of a country and fly domestically. Love, love, love both of those things! Why? Because I get to see a country in a way you simply can’t flying into the country from, say, Dubai. I love to see as much of Africa as I can. Road trips and flights let you actually see not only how people live, but the wide expanse of Africa.

Africa is huge and beautiful! There is something about the continent that keeps drawing me back. I’m not quite sure why, but I will say this: I can’t wait to go back! I am just grateful that I have had the opportunity to see Africa in my lifetime. Really grateful.

I was in 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 was reporting on HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis and how these three infectious diseases acutely affect mothers and children.

  1. I agree Jennifer that road trips and domestic flight in country are wonderful. This is how I felt about going to the southern tip of Chile and Patagonia. I’ve been to both the south and north of Africa and know someday I will get to see what lies between! :)
