Onward (I'm tired), onward

Well, my plans changed again -- they came full circle back to my original plans (Tazara train from Kapiri Mposhi, Zambia to Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania).

I met someone whom I had seen at the Livingstone hostel but did not get a chance to talk, until I was walking on the street in Lusaka. It became obvious that when the current flows that way, why paddle upstream?

Though I had been fantasizing about going to Lilongwe, Malawi and doing personal research on the Korean community there (including conducting taste tests at various Korean restaurants, heh heh), I had no guidebook and I read some travel horror stories on online travel forums regarding the Malawi-Tanzania border and going to Malawi would then have required me to rush to meet my next plans for southern Tanzania.

So, meeting my compatriot and heading for Tanzania immediately seemed the easiest and most logical thing to do (and right now I need easy as traveling in Africa is taxing, and I am tired and a bit homesick....)
