Tuesday 18 May. Singapore – Johannesburg – Bulawayo

I arrived in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, after a 30 hour journey somewhat jetlagged.

I didn’t come for this, but within a few hours, courtesy of my kind host Chas, I was having a cab ride in a Zimbabwe National Railways Beyer-Garratt locomotive at the local steam depot, following a visit to the National Railway Museum.

Zimbabwe has obviously been through some tough times and times are still hard. Following the collapse of the local currency, they now use the US dollar.
