Dete Cross Roads…

About three hours from Bulawayo, heading towards the Victoria Falls, is the Dete Cross Roads – just a filling station really, and as can be seen in the photo, informal veggie sellers, people waiting for transport, mini-busses and scotch-carts. It’s a pretty dangerous section of road, with people wandering all about, cattle and on occasion, elephants! I always drive VERY carefully past the cross-roads.

We managed to get diesel there (it’s been in short supply here in Zimbabwe in recent times…) and headed north-west, off the main road towards Milibizi, where I’d been invited to stay in order to take photos.

Its hot and dry here, now in Zimbabwe as we wait for the rains and I love the bright clothes and sense of community in this photograph, so classic of Zimbabwe. The three drums are an ugly reminder of a time we would all like to forget, when the police sat on our roads like vultures, using any method to extort money from innocent travellers.

I’ve added a screenshot of Zimbabwe, to give some idea of where Milibizi is, in relation to Bulawayo
