Headed off to vic falls today. only took about an hour. Arrived at backpackers lodge abd its pretty funky. The hits we're staying in are completely open to the wild. the people here are really nice. me some fellow travellers. all from oz. took a walk into town and was constantly hassled by the locals. they all wanted us to buy zim dollars off them and their hand made goods. in the end, I just gave them some change just to get rid of them. The blackmarket rate here is about $15,000 zim to one US $. Bank rates are $6000 zim to the US $. So a beer costs about $22,000 at the hotels......
Had a nice eve. sat round a fire sharing stories with the other backpackers. Had to use eye mask and earplugs to sleep...
