Harare, Zimbabwe (March 3-9, 2006)

I know it’s been a long time since the last update, but here are some pictures of the most recent adventures!

A view from the castle in the Eastern Highlands of Zimbabwe. The castle, which is now a hotel run by two Portuguese, was built by Italian prisoners during WWII. With the mist, cold, and eirriness of the Eastern Highlands, it was just like Europe, which is probably why the prisoners built a castle here. We had a hectic time arriving at the castle, including getting lost at what looked like a military camp, almost driving off the cliff of the mountains in the dark, and having to veer around a toppled tree blocking the road.

The stairwell of the castle.

The Actor: A favorite Korean restaurant in Harare run by, believe it or not, an actor who lines the walls of the restaurant with his posters.

Seble and Bryan in the lab at the medical school.

Zimbabwean food, which is like Batswana food but with peanuts added.

Some old car at the aforementioned creepy castle.
