The St Patrick’s Ball

March 17 is St Patrick’s Day which is a global celebration of the Irish culture.

There are many that have a tendency of reducing the planet’s second-largest continent of 54 countries to a single country. Misconceptions, perceptions and generalisations…

Tea at the Corner Café

A contemporary restaurant in the city of Lusaka located on Great East road, stands the place that everyone is talking about. It is superbly situated between two shopping malls Arcades and Manda hill.

A Week of Salads

Hello, as it starts to get warmer and hopefully winter can finally die down salads are the obvious choice but more specifically the types that offer just a little more substance are the ones I keep going back to. I wanted to share with you a selection of salads that I had for a week…
