Alas, dear Zimbabwe
One thing I haven't written about in this blog yet is Zimbabwe. I spent the year 1989 there, and have many tales to tell about that time. At that time, it was still a prosperous nation, full of friendly, intelligent people with gorgeous landscape and amazing resources. When travelling I was always happy to return 'home' to Zimbabwe.
Now, it is practically a wasteland due to the horrible inability of its dictator to let go of power. (Actually, even in 1989 there were the beginnings of crushing of dissent.) I did a brief search to find out some current news from the country, and found this great great site - Robert Mugabe's home page. So friggin' funny. In a very sad way.
