|Zimbabwe: We landed in a country racked by political upheaval. At 9:00 AM the Harare airport lay quiet, deserted; twenty minutes to obtain a visa, retrieve our luggage, and clear customs/passport control. We left the modern International terminal and with the guidance of friendly locals, found the sleepy building that served as the domestic terminal. A sign read: "check firearms & ammunition." A large room that looked like a coat-check served as firearm storage. Two armed men passed us. Out-of-sync with this scene, the general atmosphere and mood was not sinister. Skies clear, temperature 18 Celsius, people smiled and answered our inquiring looks in English. Easy traveling.
