Transcription

show here and there through the almost continuous tufted sod of grasses like Buffalo grass. Jan. 19. Cloudy and cool. Magnificent sunrise. Huge compound wing-shaped masses of clouds, changing to deep velvety maroon and magenta. A truly glorious spectacle. The same nearly level plateau. Green, lightly forested, stretching on and on with no bound in sight save the sky. No mountains visible. A sea of verdure. Arrived Bulwayo about 7:00 A.M. Scrawny breakfast at station. Walked through the town. Forest becoming more varied. Tall palms common, and the low, pale green dwarf species. The ground hillocky.
