Air Zimbabwe and rain

Well, what can I say? Yesterday we read in the newspaper that Air Zimbabwe, the national airline, has cancelled all flights thanks to them having no jet fuel and that the whole management has been suspended. Now isn't that something? Angry comments from the Board "why did they not get fuel from Noczim (official fuel supplier to government)"? The simple answer is that Noczim rarely has any fuel so they had been buying from Total and BP who apparently now demanded forex up front. Have a friend in Uganda who got there by Air Zim, will be interesting to see if/how/when he returns.

Rain, finally! Yesterday afternoon it started raining and has not stopped since and have we been waiting for this! I hope we now get typical rainy-season weather with a mixture of sunshine, thunderstorms and rain!
