An African adventure begins

I am in Zimbabwe.

It feels a little unreal. It all happened so fast.

Especially since I was sick with feverish tonsillitis up until yesterday and didn’t know whether I was going at all.

But here I am and the sun that shone bright in our faces, driving to Cape Town airport early this morning, has just set in a serenade of pink, behind the lush tree tops here in Victoria Falls.

Tomorrow morning, I am joining an overland bus tour going from the breathtaking waterfalls that join Zambia with Zimbabwe, through Botswana and the Okavango Delta, the golden Namibian desert, down the rugged west coast of South Africa, back to the comforts of Cape Town.

I don’t know any of the other people travelling with me for the next three weeks, but that just makes it more exciting.

Stay tuned for sunset pics and poetry.
