It seems that the more places I see and experience, the bigger I realize the world to be. The more I become aware of, the more I realize how relatively little I know of it, how many places I have still to go, how much more there is to learn.
Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life — and travel — leaves marks on you.
The journey is part of the experience — an expression of the seriousness of one’s intent. One doesn’t take the A train to Mecca.
More proof that anything remotely resembling a free and fair election in Zimbabwe is not possible. From the This is Zimbabwe website:
BACK TO TOP
The Zimbabwean government has announced the beginning of yet another operation designed to oppress the people of Zimbabwe.
Under Operation Dzikisai Madhishi (Operation pull down your satellite dish) the regime is forcing Zimbabweans to pull down their home satellite dishes through which the majority of Zimbabweans have been able to access eTV, SABC, Botswana Television as well some DSTV channels. The coverage of the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC) is generally poor outside of the main urban areas. The overwhelming propaganda content of this state channel has seen the proliferation of private satellite dishes in recent years.
This operation is a concerted effort by the regime to close all spaces through which information can be disseminated, with the objective of stealing the election.
Zimbabwe has descended into unparalleled levels of media censorship. The regime is determined to cut off Zimbabweans from the rest of the world by ensuring that they are unable to receive news from outside Zimbabwe about what is happening in their own country.
