Today we had some sad news. While in the field we received a radio call informing us that Desmond’s uncle had passed away. Unfortunately, Kingston and I had to be the bearer of bad news. Within 20 minutes Desmond was headed home to tell his family and then travel to where the village where the funeral would be. After 90 minutes of cycling home, Desmond said it would be another 4 to 5 hour bicycle ride. Apparently in the rainy season there is a sharp increase in death in rural areas of Zambia. Let’s keep Desmond and his family in our thoughts and hope that everyone at Kasanka stays healthy.
