Real World Bulawayo

Bulawayo
This is where we’re headed.

I grew up watching The Real World. Long before reality television took over the networks MTV kind of invented a new kind of genre. They put 10 strangers in a house together, brought in a film crew, and recorded what happened.

As our team met tonight at the airport, then dinner, then the hotel… it felt a little like the first episode of every season of The Real World. Strangers met for the first time, shared a little about life, and made small talk.

But, just like the TV show, things are about to get very real.
