So today as I am driving around in Lusaka. I was wondering why traffic was worse than usual. I was in an older part of town and on one of the original streets, Cairo road. A lot happens in this area. Lots of bustling activities: endless shops that carry just about anything you want but in no specific order, people overflowing from the sidewalks into the street, and more cars than parking spots. I enjoy driving around this area. It lets you know you are alive.
Anyhow, after some time, I finally drove upon the cause for the delay in traffic. Low and behold, they were painting the white lines on the road. I bet not too many of us have seen people actually pull a rope tight and hand paint the lines. Let’s talk about manual labor. People here are hard workers. That is for sure.
