The plan is later to go out for a meal to celebrate (mark? – it depends on your point of view) my departure. I am not sure where we are going or what type of food we will be having. It is interesting how the guide books and even the Zambian Tourist people talk about the fine range of food available in Zambia: Indian, Chinese, Mexican, European … . I should add that the Zambian food I have had has been pretty good too!
I feel I should end with some reflections on the month but it is too early for that. And anyway it might not be raining in Addis Ababa where I have a five hour wait between flights. And then I have to find my car in the purple car park …
PS. I have just discovered that the purple trees that have so impressed me are Jacaranda trees.
PPS. Monkey update: I also told someone local about my experiences with the monkeys. He was not quite as sanguine about the encounter as I was and said they can be a bit ‘cheeky’. I suppose I should be grateful that it was a hot day.
