Zambia

“The driveway of my former flat. 5C Martin Luther King Road, Lusaka, Zambia,” writes azleaf, who also has this interesting related blog post. Excerpt:

In the style of many southern African neighbourhoods, MLK Road Lusaka is completely surrounded by glass topped walls, heavy metal gates and underpaid security guards from nearby townships. Most of the landscaped area between the walls and the drainage ditches that abut the tarmac is kept immaculately trimmed by a squad of blue-coverall wearing young men. They cut the grass, bent over double, with blunt scythes.
