Zimbabwe – short and sweet.
We took and over night train from Victoria Falls to Bulawayo and then a taxi to Rob, Jane and Emily’s house. Family friends of Sam’s Aunt and Uncle, Rob and Jane took us into their beautiful home like we were their own children.
Hugely generous, they fed and entertained us for three days and nights. We played tennis, went swimming, visited the Matopos, saw some big birds on the neighbours roof, played with their dogs, played the piano with Emily and generally just had good chats and much needed Mum and Dad time.
Somewhat reluctantly, we got in a crazy small van and took off from Bulawayo, across the boarder to Francistown in Botswana and then on to Maun just as the sun was setting.
Our time with Rob, Jane and Emily was quite simply the loveliest of all the lovelies.
