Sunday Post: People

I took the following photos during my tour through Zimbabwe. These are all tour members listening to our guide telling us something about the Victoria Waterfall and the statue of Livingston.

David Livingstone

he explored the African interior to the north, in the period 1852–56, and was the first European to see the Mosi-oa-Tunya (“the smoke that thunders”) waterfall (which he renamed Victoria Fallsafter his monarch, Queen Victoria), of which he wrote later, “Scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight.” (Jeal, p. 149)

Livingstone was one of the first Westerners to make a transcontinental journey across Africa, Luanda on the Atlantic toQuelimane on the Indian Ocean near the mouth of the Zambezi, in 1854–56.[4] Despite repeated European attempts, especially by the Portuguese, central and southern Africa had not been crossed by Europeans at that latitude owing to their susceptibility tomalariadysentery and sleeping sickness which was prevalent in the interior and which also prevented use of draught animals(oxen and horses), as well as to the opposition of powerful chiefs and tribes, such as the Lozi, and the Lunda of Mwata Kazembe.

This one is also on the way to the Falls. Vendors trying to sell their goods.

The vendors need the tourist to keep alive.
