fun in livingstone


livingstone is a great town—food, open market, night life, taxi drivers, second-hand stores are all great.  yes, we managed to find a few second-hand stores.  they sold clothes that have presumably been donated from the united states.  so essentially, we shopped in a couple Zambian Goodwills.  that evening we had an all-inclusive river cruise scheduled, so we decided we needed classy outfits for the event.  photos from the event to follow…but yes, sam did in fact fall in love with and purchase that shirt.

the trails around mosi-oa-tunya national park bring you right next to the falls.  RIGHT next to the falls.  since we went at the end of the rainy season, the river is high.  so the constant mist rising from the crashing water made it seem like it was raining.  we got soaked.  

my dry camera and wallet brought to you by ziploc.

the first picture is the bridge over the river just below victoria falls.  to the left is zimbabwe and to the right is zambia.  that small house in the middle of the bridge is the place where, if you so choose, can take part in several bad decisions involving a harness, rope, and dangling yourself above the rushing river.  well, some crazies in our group decided that they wanted to go bungee jumping.  watching was enough for me.

to get to zambia from botswana, we had to take a rather sketchy ferry across the river.  we shared it with several other passengers and a lorry (namibian term for a semi-truck).
