Maya lands in Lusaka, Zambia's capital. The country is a true
colonial relic with borders arbitrary drawn, which do not overlap
with any solid proof, in terms of ethnicity and language.
Lusaka has many faces. The majority of its population, almost 1.5 million people, lives, as one would expect, in shanty towns, in sharp contrast with the wide clean streets, the villas, parks and tall buildings which house state services and where the privileged population lives. Among the wealthy people of this country, we find many Greeks.
During the 30s, 40s and 50s, many Greeks decided to seek their fortune in northern Rhodesia, then thriving, which provided many opportunities. With hard work and thanks to the Greek business acumen, many of them became very successful entrepreneurs. Our program will meet with some of these businessmen before taking off for Livingston.
Livingston, with its 150.000 inhabitants, is located along the banks of the Zambezi River, near the famous Victoria Falls. That's why Livingston has a tradition in tourism, with luxurious hotels, restaurants and bungalows full of tourists. The visitor is invited to be lured by the magic of nature, through safaris, without spoiling his good mood with this country's tragic reality.
