Lara Weber is a friend whose service in Zambia overlapped mine. Today, she is a news editor for the RedEye, an entertaining and informative offshoot of the Chicago Tribune geared towards a younger audience.

Originally published by the Tribune, this article describes what it's like to live in Zambia during the hunger season. It's sad but very well-written.
