When I took my last bus ride to the capital and eventually the airport, I encountered almost every single significant CR national I'd it was providence. This continued when I got back to the US. Really an intense spiritual and political thang..

Hitched from chipata to Lusaka, didn't negotiate before getting in the car, ended up paying the same amount as a bus ride would have been. It took 3 hours too long, and the car got 2 flat tires. FMPCL

Today, a baby pulled my shirt down and everyone saw my boob. I guess they'd never seen a white person's boob before, because now all ANYONE can talk about is how pink my nipples are. FMPCL.

Spent most of my monthly pay for a vet from the capital to come to my village to spay my dog. Well, she chewed the stitches and her guts fell out of the wound. She survived, but should've just paid the local pig-spayer $5 to do it in the first place.
