Still in the capital, Lusaka. Car troubles have slowed us down a bit. No worries though because it gave us a chance to experience what many Zambians experience daily: taking a crowded taxi mini-van. How do you get one of these? Stand on the side of, or in the road and wait until a little white and blue mini-van passes heads your way. Observe that the van is packed to the gills with people. Watch as the van driver looks at your group of three adults and six children, waves “no”, and keeps driving. Repeat, until one van slows down and motions that he will be back. Yeah right. But then he comes back for you! All six kids go in the back seat (no seat belts). The three adults pack into the two remaining open seats. The other seats are full with at least seven other customers! Needless to say personal space was non-existent. Thankfully the car is fixed and we’ll head out on the eight hour trip to Samfya tomorrow morning. Pray that the radiator – the part that was repaired – would not over heat. I can’t imagine taking that trip in a crowded mini-van. On the other hand, I hear it snowed 12 inches in Dubuque yesterday. Perhaps we’ll pray for many of you tonight.
