The Lusaka National Museum

For our orientation yesterday we took a field trip to the Lusaka National Museum. The outside of the building was very nice for Zambian standards, but looking at the exhibit you knew that you were in Zambia. Much of the information was photocopied newspaper articles, and artifacts that had been stolen from their display. Despite this, we did enjoy seeing more into Zambian culture and history. They had an interesting section on witchcraft which is still very much alive and active here. I (Steph) also enjoyed the political section.
