Happy Valentine's Day!

I've blogged before about Zambia's poor roads. Well, it looks as though someone was listening! Today, the EU agreed to give nearly $91 million to refurbish Zambia's roads for "the economic upliftment of rural areas" (read: to get crops to market).

Interestingly, according to IRIN, "Zambia has 8,500 km of gravel road, 21,680 km of dirt road and about 30,000 km of community road networks, comprising tracks, trails and footpaths."
