Big roars from our next country… It is called Zimbabwe. Here is a Map.
The capital city is called Harare.
It was a beautiful city with a lovely Park.
It had huge modern and Nice buildings with banks, shopping centres and cafes.
The streets were lined with huge trees called jacaranda trees.
In Zimbabwe, we had to use US dollars to pay for things.
They used to use the Zimbabwean dollar but It started getting very expensive for people to use. Bread, eggs, milk and other things became really expensive.
They had very large notes…sometimes even small things cost millions, billions and trillions of dollars.
We also visited some very special caves in chinhoyi.
When the water drips down into the cave it brings minerals down too. When the water dries out the minerals are left behind. Gradually over many years, the minerals form things called Stalagmites and stalactites. Stalagmites grow up from the cage floor and stalactites grow down from the ceiling.
The cave made the water in the lake look more Blue than normal. It looked magical and you couldn’t see where the rock ended and the water started.
Zimbabwe also shares Victoria Falls with Zambia. We had lots of fun there. We will write more about that next week.
