After the elephant encounter, I greeted a group of determined women who were able to balance their goods with no issues. I would leave this region extremely impressed by the kind, funny and easy going attitude of the locals. Women and men often have to walk long distances to arrive to their final destination. Later on in the day, when speaking to the hotel rep behind the counter, a young gentlemen kindly provided his resume to the rep and inquired if any opportunities were available. Zimbabwe has experienced economical hardship as hyperinflation was prevalent, reaching near 80 billion percent in 2008. Subsequently, the country would stop printing its money in 2009. Today, the USD is the main currency and lines are created when the ATM's receive cash. All the ATM's I visited were empty (make sure to bring cash!). However, as mentioned, the people were a joy to speak to and interact with and at no point did I feel as if my safety was at risk.
