We spent a couple of nights in Bulawayo with my dad’s cousin Maria and family. It was so good to be sleeping in an actual bed again! Both nights were very festive, the last one involving a long session of drinking with my cousin John and his girlfriend Jenny which culminated in us sneaking into his old highschool for a midnight swim. Yes very mature I know.
We also had a wonderful long lunch with my aunt June and family.
During one of the days we visited the Art Gallery, which always has a lot of interesting stuff. They also have several small studios on site that they rent out to local artists, so we were able to go and meet some of the artists. Annie and Soph were very quick to make friends with some of them, with Annie keen to try and help them out by getting some of their work over to Australia. I think chatting to Annie they were a bit disheartened to learn that its just as hard to make a living from selling art in Australia as it is in Zim.
