You never quite know what to expect...

I was driving to the office last week on a Saturday and traffic was snarled.  After waiting my turn, I found out why. The police were marching down the middle of the street, playing instruments to promote something. It seems like this happens probably ever weekend. They have lots of special days here. Like, Piracy Protection day or Water Day or Eat Lots of Nshima day (well, o.k. not the Nshima, BUT there might be and I just don’t know it.) They celebrate the day by walking down Great East (the main road through town) and carrying a banner, and wearing shirts and sometimes asking for money.   Just one of the perks living here in Zambia.
