Zambezi River and Victoria Falls.  Michael Palin in Pole to Pole went bungee jumping on the bridge between Zambia and Zimbabwe.  (The world’s most glamorous and brilliant economist in my book, Dambisa Moyo is from Zambia).

We got tired of Ancient Aliens and turned on PBS.  Actor F. Murray Abraham is narrating this film about the Zambezi and Victoria Falls.  The thing I am enjoying most about the show is another man speaking.  A fisherman on the river called Mr. White.  He speaks in the voice of a poet.  He sounds like a deeper voiced version of my African buddies at work, Anastase and Twaje.  (I am learning to be able to tell if someone is a speaker of a Bantu language.  Having been in South Africa helps as well).

Very beautiful place.  Have to decide if it is under the Samuel Johnson definition of Going to see, but WORTH going to see?

About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
