The wedding: A lot happened today, we started the church wedding at 12pm then went to the venue for lunch. On the way from Harare, Vimbai, Kundai and Tendai had car problems with the Pajero breaking down on the way. Seems to be a head gasket issue. The car sent to tow them also runs out of fuel. Anyway they eventually make it and celebrate Kudzai and Sindiso's wedding.

Day one of my trip has started well. I met up with Rocky and his brother Ronny for breakfast and we went to a spot near four ways - I don't recall the name but of course I was treated to the typical African breakfast. Wow. Then TK and I headed off to do grocery shopping for the next leg in Zimbabwe at Makro. Rocky will pick me up around 3pm to go and see his new build. Went to see Rockys new house construction... wow I love it. It's a double story mansion just down the road from his current home. They hope to complete it by year end. After a bottle of Glenfidich Rockys accompanies me to visit my cousin Donald. We have dinner with Donny before he drops me off at home in four ways. What a day.

1 August 2017

Stop over in Doha. Found a lounge called the ORYX which was actually not bad. For $50 they have a shower, free food and drink (including limited alcoholic beverages) and a quiet room where I got a few hours sleep. It's not a hotel or anything but it will do for the 6hrs that they give you. Man the shower was refreshing after 14hrs in the air

31 July 2017

Finally it's time to leave for Africa via Doha (Qatar). This trip has had its fair share of complications from almost not happening due to the Mwanashes birth certificate being unavailable to flight changes. Anyway here I go.
