Several people have emailed with concern about how the death of Zambia's president will affect political stability.

We don't know, though of course people assume that the transition will be stable, as Zambians are peaceful people. They achieved independence without bloodshed, so we're hoping elections will be smooth. Of course, that's what they thought in Kenya, too.

We got to witness history Saturday, when our taxi was diverted by a roadblock as we passed by the site of the funeral. Mourners lined the streets to pay tribute to the procession.
