“Cat, you know that the map (a satellite photo) is not right? ... think think and hanged it on the opposite wall, You think the map is right now? Sure, now the map is correct!" (Work anecdote on reading maps)
The drawing companies are generally motivated and I have had several interesting discussions with these autodidact architects on architecture and urban design.

This is the farm of Bert & Nchimunya in Harmony, 10 km east of Choma. The fellow guest (a musician who, amongst others, records Zambian music, check http://www.swp-records.com/) and myself were impressed to see how they grow heaps of onions, vegetables and fruits on 9 ha of sandy, savannah land. With the tred the water is pumped from the well to irrigate the growing fruit trees. The place really feels like a holiday hangout!
