I Chronicles 29:11 "Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty:for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all."

The Sights We See

There are a lot of interesting things to see here in Zambia. Not the least of which are things people carry on their bikes. They seem to be the transportation mode of choice, here in Chipata especially. They are everywhere. It's not really a problem until the sun goes down and you can't see them. We have no street lights, so the moon is it! But I thought I would post some pics of things we've seen on the back of bikes...


 You can carry a friend on your bike!

And believe it or not, they have bike "taxis" here in Chipata. You pay someone to give you a ride on the back of their bike. It could be across town, to the grocery store, home from a friend's house....

 A bag of mealie meal...

 Wood for a fire....

 Huge bags of coal...

 Wood planks to make something with...

 Straw for making something with...

 A basket piled with onions and potatoes...

A huge water drum...

Two LIVE pigs...

We've also seen live chickens bound to the handlebars of bikes, live goats on the back, and spare tires attached to the back. I just haven't been able to catch a photo of those...

The bike parking lot out near Myana Farm. Lots of workers use bikes!!
