Lineout In Lusaka
I arrived in Lusaka on Thursday and went to watch a rugby match on Saturday. I am not an expert, but David, who has more experience of watching rugby, said the standard of play was very high. It was a little one-sided with Lusaka scoring many more tries. but still good to watch. There were some very fast players on the pitch and I was surprised that there were no serious injuries. The ferocious tackles with which some players were brought down sometimes caused the spectators to groan in sympathy. I liked the expressions on the players faces in the lineout. By good fortune quite a few of them were visible unobstructed. I apologise for the small size, but Internet connectivity is not great here, and very expensive (I am paying per Mb.)

Love it Ruud.   Action, color, composition, etc.  It so much brings me back to Lusaka as I was there a couple of years ago.  I do hope you enjoy your stay there as I found the people interesting.  And..they do love their sports.  More pure than the advanced countries.   Cool...thanks!

Thanks Richard. I'll be here for six months and am beginning to 'appreciate' the laid back style of working here....
