I’m a Lusaka girl. I was born and raised in Lusaka. For a long time it was all I knew. I remember thinking I wouldn’t want to live any place else. But now that’s changing. Every time I travel to a new town I fall in love with that town. I recently traveled to Livingstone and I realized just how much peace I feel when I’m away from Lusaka. There is a sense of calm and an absence of rushing. To be fair, this could be because when I travel I don’t have to report for work at 8am. But I am sure there is more. Lusaka is busy. Always rushing somewhere. When you try to slow down, a serious case of FOMO besieges you. It’s like it’s telling you to keep up or get left behind.
