Contrasts

The contrasts in Africa are great, from hearing about a grandmother taking care of 10 grandchildren since all parents have died from AIDS in Zimbabwe and tribes in Tanzania living the old way in straw cottages to staying at Radisson Blue in Lusaka (mostly we stayed in low cost hostels, but as a reward for the 52 hour train journey from Dar es Salaam we stayed one night at Radisson). Speaking with people, they are optimistic regarding the future, except from Zimbabwe where people are waiting for RM to …..- then they hope that things will change. In Tanzania the new president seems to be a good man that works for the people of Tanzania – it has not always been like that.
