I'm in Zimbabwe, a land of paradox. Among the world's lowest life expectancies of 37 years. That's right - 37!

The world's highest orphan population per capita.... Also, a land of the warmest smiles. A land of sheer beauty that beckons for visitors. And now a place that offers some reasonable hope with the national unity govt. To be sure, Zim faces daunting political and social challenges. Still, the country may be down, but don't count it out.
