We made it! It has been a long journey. Nine months in boxes, three house moves, four days in transit, a week in Harare, but we are finally at home in Victoria Falls.
Will and Uncle Corky came up two days before Kepler and I, driving the cars up with a bunch of furniture.
They also got cracking on the pool fence which is now fully finished and keeping little man safe.
By the way, if you are ever wondering what happened to those classic old Boeing 737’s with ash trays in the arm rests and giant blue leather seats I can tell you; Air Zimbabwe bought them.
They might shake a bit but they still go, if you are wondering.
Anyway, I arrived to a fully functional house complete with bed in spare room, thanks to the lady whose old house we are in. She shall remain nameless as I don’t think she’s the sort to be too public, but suffice to say several meals were in the fridge, our kitchen has all we need, and we even have a spare bed, not to mention towels, shampoo, conditioner and soap.
She has told us it will remain furnished and functional with her stuff until ours arrives. What a welcome to Victoria Falls.
We honestly could not have had a softer landing here, and we are VERY grateful.
Soon, I will meet our domestic employees, otherwise known as a gardener and a maid…CONTROVERSIAL!!! I’ll explain in the next few posts why we have made this decision, but suffice to say for now it has to do with unemployment levels in this country.
But first, it is Sunday tomorrow, so we are off to check out the local church. It will be a little different from our 500-strong congregation at home filled with family members
Rumour has it we will be meeting with 15 others mostly over the age of 60!
