At the market:
Smell of fish in the enclosed building
Hope, a little baby girl with huge, black, unblinking eyes
A kitten crying on a roof
Women carrying babies and children tied to their backs
A woman carrying five live chickens in a blue plastic bag, their heads poking out
Two girls the age of my daughter following closing behind as I walked
Thousands of people, no space
Obama shirts and bags
Searching for fabric
A red sunset like none you have seen
The "God Knows Shop"
The "Abba Father Restaurant"
Words of welcome: "Welcome to Zambia!"
God in the eyes
Cartons of milk-like substance
Cars in all and any direction
