Ducks, Iced Tea & Photography Club

Our last physical camera club meeting took place months ago, apart from our monthly zoom meetings. Now that social gatherings of more than a certain number of people are allowed, we are rotating the meetings in different neighbourhoods in Lusaka so as not to always be in one location at a time, giving people a…

Swift Tea Break at Ciêla Resort and Spa 

It was a strangely gloomy drizzly summers morning but went to briefly see some folks playing in the charity golf tournament at Bonanza. Although the hotel has been open for a while now, have not set foot this side of town in ages and the last time I ventured there, the only thing there was…

On the Road: Zambezi Escarpment Views

Some months ago before the rain had subdued, we went for a drive and ended up past the end of Leopards Hill Road all the way to Chongwe. We were curious and turned right at the junction onto the Chirundu Road to see what was there and how much further we could drive, only to…

Catchup and Cocktails At Latitude 15

Just realised before meeting a friend who I haven’t seen in a year for some socially distanced cocktails that it has been close to two years since I stepped foot inside Latitude 15 degrees. Masked up I went ahead, first thing when you arrive at the gate is a temperature check then once that’s an…

A Hands on Experience at the Korean Restaurant

Not entirely sure if it has a name because couldn’t see one on the wall but regardless, finally made it to the the Korean Restaurant on Kudu Road in Kabulonga. This place was recommended to me by a friend and it did not disappoint had no clue what to expect was told it is in…

Barbeque Night at the Radisson Blu

Things seems to be looking up and it was nice to go out once more to have a meal at the Radisson Blu Hotel for one of their Friday night barbeques. Arrived a little earlier than six to beat the traffic on that side of town with all the roadworks going on right now. It…

7th Sense Fine Dining at The Quorum

I brushed up on my table manners expeditiously the minute I got invited to experience the 7th Sense at the Quorum. To be honest fine dining does cost you a pretty penny but it is one of those meals that you will never shut up about once you have a taste. Now that lockdown restrictions…

Photography: Nature Macro

Although we are currently not able to physically meet for the Camera Chat Group Lusaka meetings still once a month via Zoom and submissions are made online for now to be safe. Last month’s assignment was on Nature Macro Photography, which is a unique form of photography that involves photographing small objects to make them look…

Monkey Pools Revisited

I can not believe that it has been a couple of years since my last visit to Monkey Pools and cabin fever had me yearning for a walk in the greater outdoors, so it was time to revisit the place. Located on leopards hill road within housing estate MukaMunya which in itself is situated at…

Quick Meeting at Le Elementos

For the first time in three weeks, I went out to get food supplies and for a quick meeting at Le Elementos Hotel. The moment you walk in you are given hand sanitizer but as you would expect with what’s going on worldwide things were pretty quiet there with just a handful of people sitting…
