This is a postcard we bought and sent to my parents in England.
On the back it is dated 25.2.67 and the message is
“Here we were today, across the border to Rhodesia. The falls are fabulous
and we walked in the rain forest opposite the falls and got soaked from the spray,
much love. E and R ”
When Jean was with us we took her to the street market in Cairo Road, Lusaka and
she bought a beautiful necklace of malachite, which she still has.

This page was written in 1996 and now in 2019 I have acquired the following from Glen Stephens.
I hummed and hahhed quite a bit before buying it, but it was such an appealing error that I suggested
I be given it as a birthday present, courtesy of a dear sister-in-law.
This is GLEN'S DESCRIPTION
ZAMBIA 1988 Bird stamp 10K **SPECTACULAR** Colour Shift!
I was in Zambia last week, at the very edge of the Zambezi River, about to be swept over the edge of Victoria Falls into Zimbabwe so this was an opportune buy today, in a collection of printing errors.
THE most spectacular Colour Misregistration you will ever see from ANYWHERE. The 1988 10K Chicken top value of set – a normal copy is shown - hard to believe it is the same stamp!
Fresh MUH corner copy with Plate number.
For a BIRDS collection – a real showpiece.
For some reason, chickens (chooks as they are known here) have a great appeal
and this is borne out by the
small painting on our wall by Alan Purnell.
