Harare, originally uploaded by Tak from HK.

It is surprisingly easy to pass the border to Zimbabwe and back to my HKSAR passport.

And, this is my first time to take a ride by truck, heading to Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe.

Many stories were heard before my trip to Zimbabwe: No food in the shop, lacking fuel for car, water shortage, the official exchange rate of USD to Zim dollar is 1 to 250 while the parallel market is 1:200,000, etc.

And the situation is not so bad when I arrived. This is true that I cannot find Coke in the city centre, the menu has separate pages for the prices due to the huge inflation rate.
