Cape Maclear.

I have no idea what to write about. We’re sitting in Cape Maclear almost a month. Nothing new is happening, we’re outside of the real world, with no outsiders except tourist, and, oh wait…. we’ve met amazing people and we’re staying in a paradise. Have I written about that? I have no idea how it’s [...]

African Women.

Buckets full of water or fruits on top of a head and kid wrapped up at the back – the most typical picture you can get while traveling southern parts of Africa. Silent superheroes. Somebody needs to give them some credit! I’m not feminist, I believe in equal rights but I won’t deny different roles [...]

Borders.

African borders. We already crossed few of them, and trust me – none of them was easy. When we were crossing the one with Botswana, we had problems with Radek’s visa, he kind of overstayed his South African one for two months. Not a big deal… so they wanted him to stay in the country [...]

During my studies, consumed with integrals, construction of reactors and writing about bubble flows I was reading all those traveling blogs, torturing [...]

The problem with Zambian roads is that they’re connecting Copperbelt and Lusaka. That’s it. I’m not kidding, it stopped being funny somewhere on a way to [...]

“It’ll be truly Zambian night”.

Zambian days are like distorting mirror to Zimbabwe, everything here is more focused on Mzungu’s (white people) money. People rush us- even though nobody’s in a hurry, telling us “but it’s cheap!”- not knowing that we’re counting every penny. They crowd us horribly at every junction with “taxi?”, “help with bags?” and other questions we’re [...]

Zimbabwean people.

If you’re asking me Zimbabwe is a horrible touristic destination. Roads are bigger mess then Polish; attractions paid in US dollars are just unfairly expensive (and are only a few); accommodations are just bad if you don’t have pockets full of money and hot water (or even water) is a luxury; fuel prices are just [...]
