Guess where I'm sleeping tonight, Mom? In our old house in Chipata, Zambia!
My family and I used to live in Chipata from 1983 to 1991 and this was the last house that we stayed in. I crossed the border this afternoon and it felt different this time. It wasn't the excitement of entering a new country, but the joy of coming back home ;) I rolled into Chipata, a bustling town set amongst beautiful hills and decided to go by our old house and see who was living there now. Turns out that it has become a guest house (motel) and the best part is that I am typing this from my old bedroom! :) which I have to pay $25 a night for now :/ Things are expensive in Zambia compared to her neighbors, but the price is worth it for a major trip down memory lane :D
Thinking about my family and childhood friends...
