Flipping FREEZING!!!

A travel blog entry by touring-taurean


... no difference though. Takes about an hour to thaw out apparently.

Lunch at the Churchill Hotel. Mock Tudor. It could be in any town in England. Waiter has won the Zimbabwean "Service Personality of the Year 2013". Look at the photo and you'll see his name.

Natural History Museum is a museum of a museum. Looks like it was built in the 60s and not been updated or dusted since. Has an excellent display on Rhodes, however.


Mini Olympics!

A travel blog entry by rosewj

Stopped on the way to the orphanage to get 60 lollipops from a vendor on the side of the road, then got there and played with the kids on the swings for a while - me trying to push 5 of them at once!

Chipangali Week 2...and a bit

A travel blog entry by carlyandjosh


... first birds ever that I wasn't that scared of...and I have the photos to prove it! (see Eric - some birds do like me!).

Zoe introduced me to her squirrel (Scratch) who was very cute and was able to stick to me like velcroe. We were also very lucky that Zoe was able to show us how to do clicker training with one of the Leopards (Carla) and one of the Lions (Dante) on our last day, it was an amazing experience and I will never forget it! ...
