Day 1 Lusaka

We landed in Lusaka about 6:30 AM, walked down the stairs onto the Tarmac, just like the old movies. The sun was rising, still in the west, it was literally red. Beautiful. The smokey smell was the next welcome from South Africa, I think everyone here is always burning something the sky is always hazy from the smoke.
It took forever to get our baggage, but this time it was not mechanical failure and then human error. It was that one man was unloading 3 packed luggage trailers as fast as he could.
Tony was waiting with his usual smile.
Our first stop was the hotel we will stay one night in next week before flying out. They had asked money up front, but did not need it now. We talked them into letting us use a room for a quick shower. It was great!
Next stop exchange $ for kwacha we got a lot more back than we gave
Then a sims card for our phone
Then a drive on the wild side to buy 8 bicycles. It was a questionable area. The shop owner took us to his to get 6 of the bikes. He will not keep them at the shop because they would be stolen. The guys strapped the bikes on the trailer while I napped. I was and am so tired. This will continue in the AM. I am sleeping while I type zzzzz
