Zambia: Day Five – Last of Kitwe

Background: Recent extracts from my travel journal taken at the end of each day whilst on holiday in Zambia, my home country. Enjoy!

Day Five:

Today was spent visiting PIZ College on the outskirts of Kitwe.

The morning was a lot colder and had more of a UK vibe about it with a cool breeze and lingering clouds.


We managed to pass through my primary school again as it opened (twice in one week). It’s like I was going back to school. #goodtimes

Old home..


Whenever I’ve been back to Zambia, I’ve had the privilege of passing through my childhood home.

In my second year studying architecture, we had to draw a house plan from memory of our childhood. So many memories flooded back as I walked through the house in my mind, remembering all the cool little hide and seek spots.


Gated communities and wall-fenced houses are the most common housing type in Zambia, mainly for security reasons and the vast availability of land. The more plush and expensive types can be seen as symbolic of ones status – i.e. having ‘made it’ in life.

PIZ College..


PIZ is a college that seeks to train and develop church leaders in bible handling with the purpose of growing them in their different leadership roles. We got to spent the day there and met some of the lovely and enthusiastic students.

Out and about on road in Kitwe.

Old church..

Our former church in Kitwe looked absolutely stunning. There had been some renovation done internally and externally since my last trip and it looked in good shape. Unfortunately it was mid week and no one was there, but great non-the-less to touch base and be in the place where my Christian journey began.

Evening..

Fresh fish being prepared for dinner.. Mmm lush!

And yet another perfect sunset to end another beautiful day. So grateful to be back at home to enjoy such weather.
