Zambia Mourns

Saturday morning the body of the Zambian President, Levy Mwanawasa, was brought back to Zambia and we were able to see the motorcade as it traveled from the Airport to the Mulungushi Conference Center in Lusaka. We walked with the kids from our house to Great East Road along with hundreds of others. For me it was a rare moment to photograph Zambia and Zambians (with police permission) and an opportunity to try to capture a moment in history – the death of a popular, sitting African President.
