June 13, 1998 - Plane flight was fine. 8 1/4 hours direct from London to Harare. No earpopping as Harare is at 1500 Meters, no jet lag either just some dehydration. My dearest friend Tshuma, who I met in Germany and had not seen for 15 years, met me at 8:30 in the morning. It is nice and cool here 16 degree Celsius but a strong sun that will give you welts in an hour if you do not cover up. It is lovely to renew my friendship with Tshuma, who drove 5 1/2 hours to see me. What a blessed soul! I open my heart to Africa. I am a little bit overwhelmed by the new experience and the differences. In town it looks like Europe in the city center but outside of town it is definitely 3rd world. It reminds me of Jahmaica but less developed. The water is good to drink and tastes better than Seattle as there is no Chlorine in it. I saw a great World Cup Game on the Tele between Nigeria and Spain and Nigerian won so Africa was happy and me too. (3 - 2) I retired early to catch some sleep to see Tshuma. We can't talk anymore till 3 or 4 in the morning the way we used to.


I will have future pics here for more travelogues in the future.
