Day 436 January 2020 in Zimbabwe ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

Up at 6am this morning for an open air shower.

Chimanimani is located in Chimanimani District,  Manicaland Province, in south-eastern Zimbabwe, close to the border with Mozambique.

Despite a recent influx of Russian gem seekers, in late 2013 Chimanimani was said to have “virtually collapsed” and turned into a ghost town. Unemployment has recently peaked at unprecedented levels and tourism all but dissipated. So many shops have closed that residents are now commuting to Mutare for basic necessities.
