I am from Lusaka, Zambia. What I enjoy most is the incredibly friendly people. There are over 70 ethnic groups spread across Zambia and Lusaka is a melting pot of these different cultures and traditions. Everyone is united in being Zambian even when they have a different culture and language.

Not to mention, Indian street food and desserts are my callings to be back home more often.
