A theatre in a fancy suburban retail park hosts tragic clown shows and African folk tales told by puppeteers; organ recitals and string quartets reverberate around an old Dutch Reformed Church; and a free stage on Harare's main thoroughfare, First Street, brings rappers and Irish fiddlers to ...

        ... a toenail, especially given that the animals are sedated. The second reason is that the park is patrolled by rangers with exceedingly large weapons who are apparently allowed to shoot poachers on sight.

        We all stayed at the community centre with Danielle, Mike, Sam, Zania, The mothers of disabled children and their kids. It was an experience.

In Zimbabwe it is incredibly expensive, but she never stops smiling. In the ...
