Welcome to Zimbabwe

A travel blog entry by burles

After driving for a few long days, we reached the border of Zimbabwe. Canada at the moment does not have a great relationship with Zimbabwe because we publicly condemned the president, Robert Mugabe, and pulled our funding from anything to do with the man.
