F.A Cup Day.....

An Easy MIllion Dollars Lying About...

Little Was Deb To KNowThat Her Scarf Was A Killer....

Zimbawean Poker School....


Antelope Park,Gweru was where we all had the chance to go walking with lions.The park is a fully functioning lion breeding centre where they hope to some day, release the lions they breed in captivity, back into the wild.Of course it is also a major tourist attraction and a stopover on the overland truck route hence our reason for coming here.

To say it was an amazing experience would be an understatement.Its not often you get the chance to walk with,stalk with and pat lions.The lions are all very young as they only allow you to walk etc with them up to the age of 18 months.The cubs are great fun to walk with as they are learning the way of walking with a dominant pride ie,man and also develop their stalking techniques.Whereas the older lions can be a bit unpredictable and even at a young age are very powerful with big paws...

A couple of days was spent here doing all the various activities that could be done with lions and other wildlife such as elephant rides etc etc....

I got the opportunity to catch a ride into, Gweru the main town nearby, with one of the older women who works at the park.She was good to speak with about the current situation in Zim but was very wary as to who could hear her.Probably one of the saddest things I have heard came from her when she said that the people of Zimbabwe have now only got god to get them out of their current predicament with Mugabe.She was such a proud woman who had endured many hardships in her life but even she was looking for divine intervention to help her country out of its current plight.Such a shame that a beautiful country with friendly proud people should be getting fucked over like this without the international community giving a shit while it slowly sinks into obscurity.....
