Posted 38 photos: Last couple of chill days in Harare. Random cafe stops, cooking for Elizabeth, excellent Indian food at Spice Lounge (including really spicy chai), and sorghum sadza at Gava's. Then, depart. rhiaro.co.uk/2019/05/photos-zi

It remains a mystery why to this day it still hasn't occurred to anybody to put up a big board with departure platforms anywhere in Zagreb bus station.

It's a huge station, and every time I have to go ask at the information window where my bus is leaving from. Pro tip: if it's a busy time, do not leave this to the last minute.

(happy to be back in the land of krompirusa though, eh. Even mediocre Croatian bus station 'burek krompir')


Week in review: 6-12 May. Spent in Harare, Zimbabwe, chilling and touristing; featuring a rhino and some fantastic sunsets rhiaro.co.uk/2019/05/week-in-r

Posted 24 photos: Two days with tutors from Sprout Coding in Harare suburbs, Zimbabwean food at last, and some random stuff. The power finally came back, and then the wifi. rhiaro.co.uk/2019/05/photos-zi

Posted 50 photos: Still no power. Went to some markets with the Fin and the Russians where I bought tasty snacks and tea, and in the evening we climbed up a hill in the south of the city in time to see the sun set. From the distance, Harare looks almost like a modern and functional city. rhiaro.co.uk/2019/05/photos-zi

Posted 48 photos: My first weekend in Harare, Zimbabwe was pretty chill. We visited some markets and hung out in cafes. Ate great Ethiopian food at Queen Makeda, reasonable pizza at St Elmo's, amazing noodles at the market. rhiaro.co.uk/2019/05/photos-zi

me, talking to my computer when it's not cooperating: Can I speak to your task manager?

Today I sustained minor injuries whilst escaping a charging rhino.

It's day 4 in Zimbabwe, I think things are going pretty well.
