Family time!

sunny 93 °F

Seth ended up having a rough travel back home. His first plane arrived late to Kenya so he missed the flight to New York. He had to stay overnight and be stuck in a Kenya Hotel for almost 24 hours (apparently he was in a rough place and they didn't want him to leave). He finally made it home today! Kenzie had a rough time knowing her dad was leaving, she cried for a good hour but we are on night #3 and she's been fine!

Friday we visited my Grandmother's old house. My uncle his wife and kids now love in this house. It's very sad with the drought and power cuts it makes it near impossible for him to keep the place looking it's best. I was still amazed on how beautiful the property was, they hold weddings on the property because it's one of the more attractive looking places in Harare. We got to meet my cousins for the first time they were adorable and all so nice!


Later that evening my Uncle and Aunt through a huge party with tons of food and cocktails. The amazing thing about Zimbabwe is it doesn't take a long time to plan a party. I think a majority of the people that came were invited the same day or maybe a day prior? These guys definitely know how to party ALL the time!

The next day we visited family and got to experience the families Hindu culture by going to a Pre Diwali Celebration. There was so many people dressed in beautiful clothes. Kenzie says she wants one , however you are unable to purchase any of the saris here in Zimbabwe.

Every day is blending together and it's going so fast. We are only here a couple more days and I just can't get over the weather and the beauty I have seen in this country. I don't want to come back home because people just are not as friendly back in the states.

Yesterday we visited Dumboshava, when I thought Zimbabwe couldn't get more beautiful it does. This place was breathtaking and relaxing. We went during sunset so it wasn't super hot climbing up. This kids enjoyed the walk up because it was all rock! The blog is not allowing me to upload pictures again so I will try to post them tomorrow!
