Culture shock!


This will be short since I wrote a ton and it all deleted.

We arrived in Zimbabwe about 3am this morning, it took about 2 hours to get through customs. We were all OVER traveling at this point. Our luggage all arrived except the Zeke's and his cousin Gideon's carseats. This wouldn't be an issue of we were in the US, however in Zimbabwe there is no carseat laws so getting a carseat is a no go. I also discovered that only a handful of traffic lights work. You ever watch those videos of cars going through intersections with no traffic lights? Yep, makes me a bit uneasy.

I learned very quick today that I need to get over my fear of spiders. I have only seen them in the bedrooms and let me tell you these guys are HUGE. In Zimbabwe it is good luck to have spiders in your home so you should not kill them. I'm currently lying in bed with one next to me on the wall!!!

My family is all very amazing and generous they are always making sure we are comfortable, not hungry and the kids are happy. They also have servants that live behind their house, that do a ton around the house... something you won't see in the states. So far The food is delicious and the kids are enjoying their cousins!
