What to see and do
Perhaps the most fun to be had around town is simply people-watching, and talking with those who live here. From the poor street-vendors (when the police haven't chased them away!) to taxi drivers and the aid-agency expats in the larger hotels, you'll find that people are usually happy to chat. They will comment freely on politics and the issues of the day, and probably ask you how you view things as a foreigner.
These conversations can be fascinating, but be mindful that there aren't debating points to be earned, just new points of view to learn. Try not to expound your prejudices and you'll have much longer and more interesting conversations. Other ways to spend your time in Lusaka include:
