Got back from Zambia yesterday - Physically and emotionally drained.

For a variety of reasons, I didn't take my K100D. No electricity, no security where we went. Extremely hot, humid, and dusty. We took the KM A200 and Kodak DC4800, so I'm not going to post more than a few here.



Me at Victoria Falls. Not much flow, the rainy season had not yet started.



Victoria Falls.

The next day, our last, we had 2 hours of Safari, but the rainy season started. Terrible conditions for photography, but I got a few decent shots



It's good to be back home.

Thanks GW. I'm posting a link here to a video I took with the KM A200.

It's nothing great, but having been there it means a lot to me. It's the audio that captures the joy of the people of the village of Chababboma, Zambia.

Looks like some beautiful scenery. Were you vacationing in Zambia? Great pictures! Loved the hitch-hiker on the giraffe!

Thanks Jelpee, I took vacation time from work, but we were on a short term church mission. our church has set up a trust for the village of Chababboma. We bought them 3,000 banana tress a few years ago and went over to celebrate their first harvest and deliver $12,000 worth of mosquito nets that we raised. Malaria is the #2 killer after HIV/AIDS. Life is very hard there, but the people are the warmest most friendly peopleI have ever met.

Great pictures. It looked like you had fun traveling Africa. I have yet to go outside of the US.

Welcome home from the Mother Continent. I see you found that there is more than one kind of warmth to find there. I'd love to see more of you're pictures.

I can see that your church expense is very much needed there. Well we have some problem in N Am but nowhere near the severity in Zambia.
Great to see you back with images.
