Zambia: Market in district capital Serenje

Serenje, capital of the Serenje district. We`re on the market to pick up some groceries, and trying to hitch a ride deeper into the country. The market is a colourful place; Women dressed in bright cloth walk through clouds of dust, thrown up by dark feet in sandals. Most shops are situated in containers, just a few have their own concrete building. Men haggle over prices in Bemba and a little Nyanja. Trucks come and go as the day proceeds, carrying cargo with way to much people on top. De sun shines down in a straight line, casting no shadow at all.
