Day 3 Addendum: Run-in w/the President!

Excitement at the Lilayi Elephant Orphanage when a student exclaimed “the President is here”!! I turned around looking for President Edgar Lungu – to find myself looking at a face that looked very familiar, but I could not place it. Aha – it was the past Vice President of Zambia who became acting President for three months when President Michael Sata died in office in October 2014: Guy …..(could not remember last name at the time), but we had seen him in a video. So of course I went up to him and said I was happy to meet him and had seen him in a video. Unfortunately since I could not remember his last name (Scott), and therefore did not greet him by name, he was not very friendly.

But thanks Kelsey for capturing these pics!!!!!
