Last day in Zambia….shopping for souvenirs

Today is our last day – how two weeks have flown by!

We had our final pow-wow in the morning and discussed yesterday’s last day at Beit Cure Hospital and the farewell dinner which was much appreciated by all the students. More on that later since I am writing this at the airport in Amsterdam.

After the pow-wow we went for our final lunch in Lusaka at the Mimosa Cafe – the same place where we started. Here with our driver Pearson..

Then on to Kabwata Cultural village for our final dose of souvenir shopping….

Successful bargaining for some pretty fun souvenirs 🙂 Breanne and Andrea with baby mobiles….

We got befriended by a group of children as we waited after our shopping….

We had a final group dinner at everyone’s favorite restaurant: Mint Cafe and enjoyed dessert crepes: this one a Snickers crepe – yum!

Back to the lodge and the students received their gifts of the Zambian paper bead necklaces!

Then at 9pm we loaded the bus with our luggage and it was time to go to the airport. Here we are the airport – a bitter sweet moment as always to leave Zambia after a very short and busy two weeks, but glad to be going home to the families we miss…
