Next Day
Staying with James at his home we see the back office workings of a safari tour operation in Zimbabwe. The economic situation has reached a crisis. Banks limit cash withdrawals to one dollar per day - an impossible regulation if you're running a business: workers or suppliers don't get paid. Fuel has become scarcer than water in the desert.

The highest money denomination is 500 Zimbabwe dollars - in today's market that's worth ten cents. Bring stacks of cash to buy a yogurt.
