It is a paved road with many dirt roads branching off of it. It goes through the area of Chilenge.
There are always people walking on the side of the road everywhere we go.
By now, we have become used to so many things here that we see just while driving down the road.
But I remember that it is not the "typical things" you all would be seeing on your drive to church or your kids school. So I have kept a notebook in the car and asked Ian to write down the things they see as we are driving. They are in random order, but honestly it is quite funny how random they are as we are seeing them. And they are all on the side of the road...
