A Presidential Procession

Zambia's President Sata passed away on October 29th.  He is to be buried tomorrow.  The processional passed right by our house this morning.  This is the busy road that runs beside our home.  The road the military guy is standing in front of is the road that runs in front of our house.

 There were many, many vehicles in this procession - including several tanks, trucks filled with Zambian military, dignitaries and presidents from surrounding countries, past Zambian presidents and much more.

 Here is the body of the late president.

 As we were leaving after the processional passed by, we were snagged by a local tv crew who wanted to interview our children for Zambia's Kids TV.  Here they are, being interviewed...
