My cousin at whose house I stayed this summer for several days in Germany is in Zimbabwe for work on a power plant. He sent an e-mail that was something up-lifting.
In Zimbabwe there are goods in the shops now, sold for US dollars and Rand's. Everything costs at least one dollar because that is the smallest bill available. Four onions cost one dollar. Ten tomatoes cost one dollar. One bread costs one dollar. His "gardenboy" earns $200.00 and the foreman at the power plant earns $1200.00. His own salary is paid in US dollars. Things are gradually normalizing.
Good for those poor people. What a mess with that Mugabe.
