FOOD & DINING IN ZAMBIA

GENERAL

Traditional Zambian food revolves around one staple, maize, served in one form, nsima (n'SHEE-ma). Nsima is basically a type of thick porridge, rolled into balls with your right hand and dipped into a variety of stews known as relishes. Those who can afford them eat relishes of beef, chicken or fish, but the many who can't make do with beans, tiny dried fish (kapenta), pumpkin leaves (chibwabwa) and other vegetables. At breakfast, nsima can be served watered down into a soup, maybe with a little sugar. Local restaurants will serve nsima and relish for less than 5000K ($1).

Western food has also made major inroads, particularly in major cities, and in Lusaka or Livingstone you can find almost any food you like. Fast food — including burgers, pizza, and fried chicken — is very popular in Zambia. Bakeries making cheap fresh bread are a common sight in towns, and rice from Chama provides an alternative staple if all the maize starts to get to you.

For sit-down meals, ethnic eateries (thanks to a significant ex-pat population) are popular. Of course, game parks often cater to wealthy — usually foreign — visitors; therefore, high-quality Western meals can be found easily. Along the major roadways, you will find "tuck shops" featuring packaged cookies or take-away meals — meat pies or sausage rolls, for instance — which may or may not satisfy you.

Finally, in terms of hygiene outside the major cities, you are unlikely to find a proper washroom with running water. You will probably be given a bowl of water, a piece of soap, and a (damp) towel. Therefore, some travellers bring small bottles of anti-bacterial hand soap with them.

National specialties

• Freshwater fish: bream from the Kafue, Luapula and Zambezi rivers, Nile perch and lake salmon.

National drinks

• Mosi and Rhino lager.

Tipping: A 10 per cent sales tax is added to all bills. Tipping in hotels has been abolished by law but a 10 per cent tip may be expected or included in bills elsewhere.

Clockwork energy to watch parts, circle around the bar box. The wound on the use of the bar axis milling side slot. Side slot of the bar axis is driven by the winding mechanism. Watch no complex on the case, that can go about 36-50 hours. Clockwork withstand significant stress, often leading to rupture, therefore, the current alloy material, the clockwork almost no break. Movement to store a certain amount of energy to uniformly small quantities assigned to the oscillator. To this end, the energy provided by the wheel column group, Rolex Submariner Replica by a round column group increase to the same proportion the same time to reduce the transmission force of laps. The wheel column group includes four wheels and four gear, after three round Riveting first three gears. In the diagram, the slash indicates the engagement between the movable member, while the horizontal line, said movable member riveted on the same axis. Only the first wheel circumference milling box section wheel. The last a wheel escapement gear, the escapement wheel riveting pressure in the gear. The escapement wheel is assigned agencies and counter. Barrel rotate a circle about 6 hours, during this time period, the escapement gear and escapement rotate about 3600 laps. This figure represents only the first round and the last one between the wheels rotation frequency ratio. The ratio is always in this numerical range. Gear and sub-wheel revolution per hour in the center of the watch, and generally try to make.
The mechanical table - characteristics
