English conversation meets at Zambian residence
Our meeting on 20 March 2017 was hosted by Mrs. Beauty Chiti, the spouse of the Zambian Ambassador, with the theme "traditional clothing and national costumes from across the globe", inspired many of us to come dressed in our traditional clothing.
We were delighted to meet our dear friends from the Embassies & Residences group as well as Beauty’s group of "Spouses of African Ambassadors". Beauty gave a very interesting speech to an enthusiastic audience about her country, its culture and traditional clothing as well as the history of the Zambian Residence in Berlin.
The expression of fascination was clearly visible on our faces as we listened to the description of the various costumes in lively English conversations while admiring the beauty of these garments, some decorated with natural stones or elaborately sewn with gold or silver threads and worn with jewellery or brooches. The natural fabrics reflect the regional, cultural and ethnic distinctions of each country.
