The duo now heads for the road that passes through Chimanimani FM. We are standing outside the radio station getting fresh air.

The two new faces draw near us. We greet them and introduce ourselves. They also introduce themselves as Lennart Zimmer and Sophie Maar. Lennart reveals that they are tourists who came to know of Zimbabwe through a friend that recommended them to visit our lovely country.

Lennart further reveals that their port of entry was Cape Town in South Africa. They then used a bus to Harare, Zimbabwe. In Harare, that is where they boarded a bus to Chimanimani. After Chimanimani they are going to visit Great Zimbabwe in Masvingo, then Victoria Falls before winding their African tour.

On a parting note, Lennart and Sophie promise to come again to Zimbabwe in the near future. They declare boldly that Zimbabwe is good.
