Day 41 – Zim.

Blog — By on November 1, 2012 4:29 pm

It was all going smoothly at the border between Mozambique and Zimbabwe, at lunchtime, until customs undertook a cursory search of the trailer. And then they came across Imelda’s bow and arrows. If you recall the day, about a week ago, when he disappeared 120k up the road and then passed the time, while we were searching lower Mozambique for him, in a local market. He bought a bow and arrow with real metal barbs. No one knows quite why!!

So we were then accused of bringing arms into the country and suspected of gun smuggling. They immediately wanted to search every single bag. An hour later the trailer unloaded fortunately they relented. Imelda was such a popular chap you can imagine!

We have now been in Zim for a few hours and there are some stark differences to Mozambique. The following are things we didn’t see in Moz but have seen in Zim:

Ploughed fields
Cows
A tractor
Men working.
Roads without potholes…except Chinese road.
Roads without a continuous stream of people by the road.
A country not on fire.
A brick building
A woman without a child

Zim is at least a century, maybe 2, ahead of Mozambique. But it doeasnt have 2000k of beautiful sandy beaches. J

    I think I might know who gets the DOTD award for today – you must take his credit cards off him and stop him shopping ! maybe it was good that he wanted to play an indian with bow and arrow rather than a cowboy – that might have been a bit more serious !
