Incase there was any doubt that kayaking was a white man's sport Rush Sturges went and joined team Ralph Lauren. Seriously.

You can get last minute stand by flights to Livingstone from Lusaka. I managed to blag my boat on one of these. That was nicer than taking hte bus for sure.

Bus is fine though. Much better than some I have been on, just a long trip.
