So…I know you guys are all eager to know if all went well with Bruni and the plants. And I can tell you now: It did! 🙂
See for yourself:
Tired and exhausted after more than 19 hours of traveling Bruni got to Livingstone at around noon today. Lloyd had some difficulties finding a car to pick her up at the airport. But as things are in Africa all worked out. Also Grime was there to welcome her because he had some paperwork to do for PAF and did not want to miss the chance be one of the first to see Bruni again 😉
So after the first warm hugs obviously everyone wanted to see how our breadfruit babies were doing. And what can I say? They all looked healthy and green and well.
Having checked on that and a little rest they all went to a big supermarket to buy some food for the time in the village. If you guys knew the road conditions…you would probably buy food for a whole months 😉 But Bruni had a well prepared shopping list because she might or might not plan to show some exquisite German cooking skills 😉
So late afternoon they took the car to make their way to Kalomo first. And…TIA…not even an hour after leaving Livingstone they had a breakdown with the car. Nothing happened and everyone and everything is fine. But it delayed them quite a bit.
But finally they made it all to Kalomo. Bruni, the plants and Grime already left for Chinkonono Village and hit the probably bumpiest “road” (if you dare calling it a road) you can imagine. Lloyd stayed in Kalomo because there still is some money business to deal with so we can buy cement, paint and building materials to finish up our sewing room and library. He will be going to the village as soon as possible when things are sorted out in town.
So for now…we will have to see and wait for any news from Zambia. Nobody knows if and when they will find networt…but latest end of April we will feed you bit by bit with everything that happened 😉 So stay tuned…
