    musicians in the street

    I liked it to walk in the centre and visit the shopping malls and the streetmarkets and of course also to do some shopping.

    If you need a rest, you can sit down in the gardens, the park or cafes and watch the streetscene and the people walking by.

    There are streetvendors, musicians and a lot more that gives the African taste and color at this modern city. When you want more African taste, you can go to the Mbare masika, township market, a few KM from the city centre. A pity I didn't have time enough myself to do that.

    Harare

    Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe, has 2 million inhabitants.

    After one week South Eastern Africa we saw here in Harare the first high-rise modern buildings. Harare looked like a modern city with high buildings, a lot of traffic and urban action.

    Harare is the commerce centre of the country, has a good variety in shopping malls, hotels and restaurants. There are galleries and some museums.

    We spent two days in Harare, This was not enough to see all.

    Lots of green areas, parks, even a Botanical Garden (in the picture) made life in the city centre really a pleasant one. Shops, offices, ATM here and there in a period when Africa was not so open to credit cards...
    Then, suddenly, you reach the border of this strange 'bubble' and you fall again into reality: you meet once more the heavy burden of fighting your way to daily survival in an African capital.

    Walk through the residential neighbours, where the mighty 'White farmers' has their city base, though they preferred to live in the countryside, beside the large, perfectly managed, farms in the Highlands.
    Wasn't it a sort of Paradise? I admit I enjoyed a sort of white-settler kind of life-style - though my work there was directed at the small peasants - because that was the kind of unofficial separation the country requested you to accept.

    The obvious selections are Vic Falls and Motobo Park. Make sure though you stop to see the amazing cave paintings and the ruins of great Zim. There is not much preserved ancient socitey in Sub Saharan Africa.
