I had a great time visiting Zambia despite my reason for visiting not being pleasant. This time around, I took a few photos of my parent’s house. My parents did not have a big winter garden this year because of said family matters, so their smallholding was mostly bare and brown, but I still found it very beautiful.
- My parents’ home – this is my favorite view of their house as I am coming around a corner in their yard.
2. My parents’ home is on a hill and can be seen for miles around – that’s it in the photo. The views from the house are equally very beautiful, especially during the rain season when everything is green.
My parents’ plan had been to build their home on a flatter part of the plot, but changed their minds so that they could have a bigger view. It was definitely a good move except that it’s quite a trek to get to the house especially when it is very hot.
Sometimes I wonder what I am doing in Vienna in a tiny apartment and cold climate instead of being in my spacious house in Zambia. Then I remember that I may not have been where I am today had I not worked outside Zambia. As such, I am grateful that I have had the opportunity to live and work elsewhere as I have wanted since a young age. Maybe I will go back to Zambia to enjoy my spacious house, just maybe, or I will just get a more spacious place here. Alternatively, I may continue living in a small apartment but enjoy the lifestyle that I have now. Who knows? All the same, I am just grateful for what I have.
