The Learning Journey officially started last week with the arrival of two Americans, two New Zealanders, and a South African. We've been having learning circles and plenty of good conversations non-stop. Everyone brings a piece of the great puzzle. We took a field trip to Highfield, a Harare ghetto, where we met some righteous youths fighting to make a difference in their community with permaculture, art and wisdom as their weapons. Another field trip took us to Zvimba, one of the rural communities that Kufunda works with
Tomorrow, we're taking one more field trip to Rusape, another community Kufunda is working with, before spending some time in the mountains of eastern Zimbabwe. I'm looking forward to all the mushrooms and fruit.
I've been learning to shake the waosho while Divha beats the mbira and we're sounding really good. Tuesday I'm on my way to Malawi through Mozambique. (Getting my transit visa through Mozambique is quite a headache [$20 and two passport photos], but at least I started the process on time.)
