    Hello from Harare! As mentioned before, due to unrest in the middle part of Mozambique, we have had to re think our route here to Harare, basically taking the long way round Kruger national park, and up through the South of Zim.

    When I was 20, my boyfriend at the time decided it would be a good idea to teach me how to ski.

    Once we come to the paved road, the driving is more smooth. But, Dan seems to drive faster! And there are some curves, so every time he slows down for the curve, my stomach still lurches.

    ... 000 baby crocs, one of which we were given to hold! They farm the crocs for their skins so they showed us one of the skins that'd been preserving in salt. We then went over and met the owners at the big breeders which were enormous! They took us into the enclosure where they were further up the river - thankfully it was large enough not to have to get too close! We found out on Friday that social services have 3 new boys for the home which ...

    ... back by the conditions and basic standards of living. Although I have seen these conditions before and also lived in similar places, it’s still a culture shock regardless. When you get used to living somewhere like the UK for however many years and then everything changes to such basic methods of literally surviving, it’s a wake up call.
