Zambia Medical Team - We have arrived.

Zambia Medical Team

We have arrived. After our long flights (and longer waits in transit lounges) we have arrived in Ndola. Waiting to greet us at the airport was Ba Lackson. At last a friendly face and warm welcome. Welcome to Zambia say Ba Lackson. A drive through town and onto Monkey Fountain and the MMM guest house. Only a short drive. We pass down the Main Street of the city. Busy. Lots of people. Dry and dusty. Geena is snapping photos out of every window of the bus. 

After settling in we are off the Eagles Wings school to see the lay of the land. Daniel, the school principal, along with Lackson show a couple of different rooms we can use. Mean while we meet up with some old friends and for some of us some new friends. We find Ben and Chris working hard finishing off the new science labs, Nicki is with a bunch of local kids and James, who was in Australia last year, meets with us after school finishes. Our team members who have been to Zambia before, greet old friends. New friends for us newbies. Tomorrow is shopping and setting up. Wednesday the fun begins. Who will be patient number one?

So who is in the team? Barbara, Narelle, Geena, Julie, Katherine, Rachel, Darryl, Graham, Steve, Maureen and Kathy. Allow me to bring you there stories over the next few days.
