A warm greeting

Postby Import » 8th July 2011, 11:36

Dear Zambia,

I was born in Kabwe 36 years ago as my parents were working there. I came back for the first time this year to check out where I was born as we left when I was 2.

The guy at immigration looked at my Australian Passport and said "Are you here for a holiday?" Not knowing any better I answered "Yes"

Then it happened.

He flicked through to the page with my photo and saw where I was born and he got the most amazing smile and from being treated like a tourist I got the opposite response and he said "Hey Welcome Home"

From a country that I hadn't seen since I was 2 it was really nice to have that feeling of belonging.
