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.

Here’s how the weekly photo Competition works:

It’s Write Easy (2)

Last week Friday we were given five words from which we had to take one and write about it.(This is our homework for the following meeting)

The words were:  advice, breeze, grandparents, fire, scare. 

I used  ADVICE

Meaning of advice is – opinion given as to further action .

Giving advice is easy but taking advice is very hard. Some people love to give advice.

I have a friend who is always handing out advice. Every thing I do or suggest , she will give my advice on. Problem is, she never listens to or takes my advice. She always turns it around as if it was her who gave the advice.

When giving advice you must take care how you give it. Sometimes advice can make the situation worse.

One can listen to older people who have more experience in life. They know what they are talking about.

No advice is better than bad advice!

Today 23 March 2012 we had to describe a person

This is what I wrote:


Her name is Betty. I think she could be in her early eighties. She is a short but slender lady. She has grey hair and green eyes that you can see can’t see that well anymore. Betty has a smiling friendly face, always ready to talk to everyone who passes by.

Early mornings she goes out to pick up the newspaper and takes it inside to her husband – who is waiting inside. When I see her in the mornings she has this jump in her step. Hopping to me, greeting me and asking how I am. Then she starts telling about her plans for the day. She always waves at me when I am further down the road.

I feel that she is a very caring and lovely lady. I don’t know her very well but look forward to saying “hello” to her every morning.

Our homework words are:  newspaper, girls, zoo, first day …, birthday
