Victoria Falls

This morning we awoke and planned where to go over the next 3 weeks. That is coming together. At 10 we departed Jolly Boys Backpackers to go to Victoria Falls, one of the 7 natural wonders of the world. It cost 10 bucks to get in and was amazing. Lush vegetation everywhere and you can get extremely close to the falls, and the mist is everywhere. I believe it is twice as big as Niagara and doesnt have all the crap in the associated town.

We walked around for a long time and admired the falls from different angles. We were unable to cross on the Zimbabwe side where the views are equally good, but it was hard to be dissapointed with what we saw. Difficult to explain, but I will have pictures when I return that may convey that power of the falls. Going to head back to Lusaka tommorow or Sunday before leaving for eastern Africa.
