Some photos from Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

at sunrise yesterday morning, i walked to the zambezi river gorge overlook... i wasn't prepared for the sheer ruggedness and vertical drop, particularly after walking through the almost flat surrounding vegetation... and, of course, the photo doesn't begin to do it justice... i didn't have time to make it all the way to the falls but i plan to do that tomorrow morning when we have a half day free before an early afternoon departure...

i didn't realize until coming here that, in order to combat the stratospheric inflation, zimbabwe shifted to the u.s. dollar as currency in 2009... that tamed things down considerably but they're still nicking folks for $30 to see the falls... ah, well... how many times am i going to get the chance to see victoria falls anyway, eh...?
