Africa – 2017 – Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe – Oct. 6, 2017  Two more weeks to go. We are in Zimbabwe. Three more days here and then of to Botswana.

The people and the food are great.

First chance at the internet as we have been waaay out in the bush. The spelling of waaay is no accident.

We have already taken two internal flights with good results. We are thrill seekers, that’s for sure.

The planes looked well cared for and everything worked out nicely. As they say, any landing you can walk away from is a good landing. These landings were perfect.

There are rumblings of discontent here. Mugabe is still in power and the elections are not far off.

The banks have frozen savings accounts. Withdrawals are limited to twenty dollars US per month.

There are people selling 1,000,000.00 notes on the streets for a dollar. It’s crazy. We learned more after we left the country.

There is no cooking oil in the markets as we leave town.

Take a look sometime at my novels on Amazon.

They include The Adventures of the Smith Family and a short one called Mrs. V among others. My photos are now up on a friends Facebook page. Go to Ray-Andrea Matthews. It’s public.
