Detour to nowhere

Dear Family and Friends,

My eyes are not on the huge 91st birthday party of Zimbabwe’s president at our country’s World Heritage site, the Victoria Falls, this weekend.

Dear Family and Friends,

I’ve been writing these letters about life in Zimbabwe since February 2000 and could never have carried on for so long without the support, encouragement and enthusiasm of so many  people who follow the tragic events bedevilling our country.
