On The Road Again

Returned from Livingstone yesterday. Back in Lusaka now, but we are taking a Scandinavian Bus from Lusaka to Kampala in 2 hours. This will take like 3 days or something crazy. Long time on a bus and we unfortunately have to back track a bit, because Tanzania has no real roads in central, southern, western, or northwestern Tanzania. Back thru Dar, just to pick up passengers, thru Nairobi Kenya to Kampala Uganda. Hopefully sometime on Thursday. Should be great, and hopefully I will see lots of movies. Probably starring either Arnold Schwarzenager or Sylvester Stallone, the best actors of our time. I will miss Zambia, but it is much more expensive than Tanzania so it will be nice to go someplace cheaper(Uganda) I will be back in Dar on or around February 17, and my parents arrive on the 19th. They are not going to know what to do, so I will be babysitting for the most part and showing them around. Also they will be riding public transportation which I cant wait for. So about to head over to the bus station. Zambia is beautiful, great people, and great atmosphere. I will be in Jacksonville, Florida on March 5. Soon.
