I received more photos from when I lived in Zimbabwe and I wanted to share them with our readers. So now you get a part 3 and 4, and then there wouldn’t be any more photos from the time I lived in Zimbabwe with my parents. The next time I post photos from Zimbabwe it will be when I travel there with Celia. It will happen someday. :D

The photos are from my parents’ friend, Ally, who was so nice to share her photos from Zimbabwe. My father scanned them and emailed them to me. Thanks Dad and Ally. :D

I hope you enjoy the photos. I did. :D

The Africa People Think I Lived In

When I returned to Denmark, after living in Zimbabwe, people asked me if it wasn’t weird to be back in Denmark. People thought that I had been living in a mud hut in the bush.

The reality is that I lived in a big city in Zimbabwe with a population of 650.000 people and I moved back to the countryside in Denmark. So it was weird to be back in Denmark because I had to live in a small town.

As you can see on these pictures it’s true that a lot of Zimbabwe looks very different from western countries. I don’t feel that these photos are the Zimbabwe I lived in, it is the Zimbabwe we visited when Danes were visiting us.

The only time I saw this was at places with a lot of tourists. I think it was the way that a lot of my old classmates in Denmark thought it was in Zimbabwe.

Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls is one of the places that I would really enjoy to see again. I was very amazed when I first saw it. In the end I didn’t really appreciate it because every visitor we had wanted to see it.

When I someday travel back to Victoria Falls I will definitely write more about out. For now you can read more on Wikipedia. I don’t really remember much about it. I was a young kid that wanted to stay at home and play computer games. :D

In the last part I will share some photos that have more to do with my life in Zimbabwe. I hope to post it on Thursday.

    I liked your post and look forward to prt 4. In 1997 my wife and I went to Zimbabwe for our honeymoon and thoroughly enjoyed it. Pity it is not the same country any longer as its politics is dragging it down. Beautiful country.

      Yeah I agree. It’s very sad. I don’t think it’s the first country we will visit in Africa now. Even though I really want to travel back and see the school I went to and meet some of my old classmates. I don’t even know if they are in Zimbabwe anymore.
