Contacting Me

In Zambia I live in VERY rural conditions, a mud hut with no running water or electricity. 4 nights a month I got to the provincial house where there is internet.

Very reliable, and totally free if you have skype on you computer.

- Number all letters and packages you send, this is to help track which ones are missing
- Write "Air Mail" or "Par Avion" on all

Mail takes a minimum of two to four weeks to arrive, but sometimes it can take months or simply not arrive. So far I have had good luck with letters and postcards (generally its a month each way).

I have had mixed results here. Some have made it in 2 weeks, some have taken 4 months, there seems to been no real time-line. Because Zambia has a bad reputation of packages being "lost" and it is a super christian nation, make sure you put religious text on it! Put things like god is watching, or praise be to god on the front, it really does make a difference. Don't put what is in the box anywhere visible, especially if its valuable - that's just asking for trouble.

I do have a phone, however calling me is VERY expensive for you. Texting is totally fine though, and I do have service at my site.
