The dry season is here

The dry season is here

There is a definite chill in the air this morning and the sky is cloudless and gloriously blue. It is as if someone has pulled the plug on the valley and suddenly the whole area is drying out. Much of the soil here has a very high clay content and as it dries it cracks up into wonderful patterns and abstracts.

The river is now too low for us to use the boat and so we are stranded here again. It is incredible how the rainy season completely wipes out the roads so that each season they need to be rebuilt. We don’t have a grader here and have to rely on ZAWA (Zambia Wildlife Authority) to grade the road in from Mfuwe. Hopefully this will be done by the end of the month or early May…
