Harare International Festival of Arts

Once a year the normally rather quiet Harare is transformed by HIFA to a really kicking place! As we living here in Zimbabwe are a bit starved on international entertainment during the rest of the year it is as "everyone" has to be there and enjoy.

Saw Hothouse Flowers on Friday night, enjoyable and with a fantastic firework display at the end of the show. Got thoroughly "too tipsy" with friends afterwards and literally saw double for a while. Spent yesterday recovering then took the family for the "open area" with facepainting, restos we never knew existed (sushi, sushi and again sushi), sat down with Zimbabwe's only standup comedian worth mentioning (Edgar Langeveldt) who seriously claims that everyone from Moses via Einstein to Obama were/are coloured (mixed race). Makes as much sense as "everything originates in Africa" but why not?

Tonight it is Salif Keita and let's forget tomorrow is Monday and back to work...
