We’re coach-bound to Livingstone, 3 hours in and setting off from a services break where the sun is setting over the Golden Pillow Lodge. Although our visit ends on a romantic note, the majority of it was spent waiting in line for my turn to use a urinal, apparently be...

Anna here..

The past couple of days have been packed full of teaching, and have held, for me, one of the most rewarding personal experiences of the trip so far. Several days ago, Catherine (one of the piano teachers) had a rather difficult pupil, who decided she was not...

Today was our first full day in Zambia and the start of our programme of teaching. After a rather long, much needed, lie-in following a day of travelling (only one spider attack on Anna so far!) we were driven to the academy. There we were introduced to two of the teac...

Hi, Max here.

It’s departure day for Anna and I. We arrive in Lusaka, Zambia, at 14:30 local time. Until then, we sit in Heathrow Terminal 3 twiddling our thumbs and staring forlornly at the roof. We met for the first time about an hour ago and have now turned to w...
