      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 we returned to our hotel we met up with some friends from Colorado, Rebekah and John. We decided to get a taxi and go to a restaurant down the road. It's a Portuguese restaurant called Coimbra that was known for its peri peri chicken. When we arrived, it was packed with locals and delegates. We didn't know if we'd get a table. Then the ...

      ... and almost prehistoric, with thick dusty skin like dried leather. We track the rhinos for about an hour, stopping when they become visibly sick of being harassed. Back at the jeep, the obvious subject of poaching is brought up. It's obvious for two reasons. First, because the rhinos in this particular park have had their horns removed with chainsaws as a preventative measure. I'm assured that because the horns are made of keratin, this is about as painful ...

      ... done most of the packing the night before. But we gathered up our food items, sorted out what to give back to Kathy and then went up for lunch. Toasted cheese sandwiches with avocado (for me). Toasted cheese with meat (for Luke & Erick). And the goodbyes begin.
