The next 6 months I will live in this nice, white house in Mochipapa, a high cost area in Choma. The semi-attached houses once belonged to the Choma Milling Company and they are one of the few that do not have a walled fence.

Mr. Zulu, mr. Kundigwa en mr. Ngulumbu have arrived this morning in Lusaka to meet me and we had a nice talk about the work they expect me to do, tomorrow I will drive with them to Choma! Moreover Ms Zulu has a sewing machine so I might be able to create some nice shoulderbags from the beautiful fabrics that I have seen here.

This week we have VSO in country training about the different aspects of Zambian Culture, development, gender issues etc. We stay on the campus of the University of Zambia which is absolutely the most green and lush campus I have ever seen, due to all the rain!

My monthly allowance is 2.2 million Kwacha, a text message to Netherlands is about 410 Kwacha and a nice chocolate bar is 11.000 Kwacha. Off course we had to do some shopping after receiving our allowance over February and March in cash..

Lusaka is rainy, but nice warm, it is good to be here but also still a bit strange, cars drive on the left but they use the metric system and they are testing on malaria at the expat shopping centre and next to that they are advising on micro finance. Lusaka consists of as many contradictions as any city in the world. That is what I saw on my first day here. miss u.

It all comes together in Vienna; SCUPAD committee, old en new, FLUC, east en west, space invaders (invading the world with streetart), Schraubenfabrik (creative industry) and my articles in "Planning through Projects"exhibited in the museumshop. Imagine this in a backdrop of sepia colors and cobblestone streets with Austrin beers and wiener melanges, enough ingredients for a perfect weekend.
