Next day checked out the city with Brian and Minox and met with some friends of them. They were very kind for me and hence I also tried to assist them where I could for example in cooking (on a fire since there was no electricity)
When reading about Harare it should be a very attractive city but for me it is nothing special if I am being honest. But maybe on a Saturday night my feelings will be different since the city comes to life in the weekend. I decided to drop most of my stuff at Brian's house, go to Great Zimbabwe and Bulawayo (2nd biggest city of Zim) and turn back on Saturday to have a good night out with the guys.
- Hitchhiking is a normal thing in Zimbabwe and many people just take a ride in stead of the buses. The costs are about the same but if you hitch (in general) you are faster at your destination.
