David Richards @Virginians Wanting to Know More: I had a thought to throw out to the group. I've always liked the notion "sister cities" where a US and foreign city/town sort of adopt one-another. It makes it personal and I think could energize more broadly relationships among indiviuals. And is at a local enough level where you meet people. So asking for suggestions for a city/town/village in Zimbabwe that Norfolk could "befriend" -- is that the term?

Fungai Nzenza @Virginians Wanting to Know More in reply to David Richards: Interesting. I guess it would depend on what Norfolk is famous for an whether you would like a similar sort of city in terms of population or whatever other factors. The easy solution is to just pick one of the Big ones Harare or Bulawayo but i feel there are a few other little ones which might be good for their own reasons.

David Richards @Virginians Wanting to Know More: I think you're right Fungai and was really leaning more toward something smaller as it seems more personal. Perhaps a small town or even a village. Any suggestions?

Adam Shand @Virginians Wanting to Know More in reply to David Richards: Let me suggest Njanjasity which is the Simukai home area. It's a very neglected area "in the shadow of development."

David Richards @Virginians Wanting to Know More: I began this groups as "Amerians wanting..." but realized that was too encompassing; I'm hoping I and others can share what's special about our region of the US. As Zimbabwe has ~ 12 million citizens and Virginia 8 million, we're somewhat close in size

David Richards @Americans Wanting to Know More: I began this group because I realized how little I know of Zimbabwe but how impressed I've been with the people I've "virtually" met in Z-Connect. Hopefully this group will serve as an area where we can know each other better and form friendships that can advnace us all

Group Profile

Our group was started by Americans who are intrigued with Zimbabwe but who admittedly know little about this beautiful country. Thus, we would like to learn from Zimbabwians, hear the stories, finds ways we might be involved, and at a minimum make new friends through which serendipty migh shine on us all.
