books and movies to and from and in Zambia
Lots of time on the airplane to and from Zambia and lots of time in the evenings while over there as well. South African Airways has a new movies on demand system which allows each passenger to choose their movies and start, stop and pause them at will. Pretty cool. As a result, I didn't read nearly as much as I expected, but saw lots more movies. I'll be writing more about the trip itself and about some of these selections, but thought I'd just give a list for now.

Sula by Toni Morrison
Will the Circle Be Unbroken by Studs Terkel
Autobiography: The Story of My Experiments with Truth by Mohandas K Ghandi
The Gift: Imagination and the Erotic Life of Property by Lewis Hyde (just started this one on the plane coming home and was so struck by it and I couldn't go on - somehow felt I needed to read it really slowly so as not to miss anything)

I'm a very un-critical movie watcher. They entertain and distract me and that's that. The only one to really comment on is Before Sunset which I loved. That'll be for another post.
