BBC country profile: ZAMBIA
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/country_profiles/1069294.stm

From the BBC site:

Zambia has moved from being a major copper producer and potentially one of the continent's richest countries at independence in 1964 to one of the world's poorest.
A colonial legacy, mismanagement, debt and disease are said to have contributed to the country's tribulations.
Politically, it switched from colonial government into an era of one-party rule lasting 27 years. A multi-party system emerged in the early 1990s.

MARIE:
The end of the first leg of my Cape Town to Kenya tour is here in Livingstone, Zambia. Site of the incredible Victoria Falls.. second largest waterfall in the world, after Niagara we've been told. More pertinently, the site of my incredible (and I'm still incredulous I've done it) bungie jump!

Are you able to do ok with the mosquito bites, or mossies as they are called here. Not sure if you are in malaria territory or not. Thanks again for the great photos they are stunning. And YOU love marvelous too. Valerie Gail
