Zimbabwe…..signs of progress?

July 29, 2009 at 23:02 Leave a comment

We have some great products in our store from Zimbabwe, and feel like we have a closer-than-average connection to that country through interactions with some of our favorite wholesaler/importers. It’s been particularly painful to watch as the country lurches between forward and backward steps as it makes it’s way (hopefully) towards democracy and an end to violence.

There was an interesting news item from the BBC today; they’ve been allowed back in Zimbabwe, after an absence of 8 years.

Maybe this is a sign of positive days ahead?
