Our host family does not want us to move to chipata but if we do Elias
thinks we should take his youngest son with us, the main selling point
for this plan being that emmanuel does not urine the bed. So he says.
I have smelled the kids' sleeping room and somebody is doing something
funky in there.

Elias' suggestion is not as odd in zambia as it would be at home. Kids
here shift around in ways that mystify us. We still haven't figured
out where the seven year old who showed up around september came from.
And derisa recently went to live with a nurse while attending grade
nine. Somehow i doubt Trevor would sign off on taking a six year old
as a souvineer. But they don't sell records here so what else is he
supposed to collect?
