Victoria falls,what a place to go to when in Zimbabwe. But that is not the only place of interest. This country is full of historic places to see.
Fondest memory: The people themselves. They were friendly and happy go lucky. It didn't seem like we were in africa. The flower market is a sight to see.
Test yourself in the recognition of the two overlapping-though-not-mixing universes which cohexist in Harare. The 'Whites' and the 'Blacks'... two worlds apart, walking in the same city, but not in the same place; buying the same foods, but not in the same shops; living in the same city, but not in the same areas.
Fondest memory: Long, clean, perfecly kept and shadowed roads in the residential areas of Northern Harare: Alexandra, Marlborough, Avondale.... The remnants of a long reign which was kept as in a museum by Lancaster House agreements, which granted Zimbabwe independence by the acceptance of a 10-year freezing of 'Whites' power.
At our last evening in Harare, we had a nice dinner (don't ask me where, I don't remember the place or the name), with all African dishes.
On our way back to the hotel (in fact in the street where the hotel was situated) we heard music, this typical African music. We decided to take a look. There was a party going on in the garden. I really don't know if it was private or not, but anyway, we were invited to join the people. It was really nice.
A few of us stayed a while longer and we were dancing (and drinking) till the early morning. No doubt we had a great time.
Coming from the airport, and arriving in Harare, you get the impression of a very busy Western City.
But once you walk through the streets, this impression doesn't last long.
