Wednesday evening, time was set aside for interested friends or relatives to come and get informed on what it meant to be sent abroad for two years or more. Not only were they acquainted with what we could expect abroad, but also were they shown how they could keep in touch, how we will be taken care off, what they could expect. In short, they were shown they could relax. Most particularly, my mom felt much better at the end of the evening.
Thursday evening, time was scheduled to talk about our views on life, beliefs and disciplines. Everyone was still beat from the night before, but as soon as we started the discussion, no-one seemed able to stop. Jeroen, Ewan and myself finished the second bottle of whiskey in as many days and finally called it a day at 12am.
Friday morning, we talked to a visitor sent through Amnesty International. I'm already quite familiar with the general history of Zimbabwe and he was able to fill in some of the blanks.What worried me was that it seems that, indeed, going out on the streets after dark in Harare isn't a good idea. So isn't driving. And it's wise to get a guard and, if possible, some big dogs to guard our property. Hmmm.
