A Victoria Falls Christmas (Part Deux)

Photobucket
A Christmas in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, at the height of rainy season is quite lovely!

Photobucket
There was soooooo much water and mist, it was insane! I was drenched through my poncho!
So different than during the dry season.

Photobucket
And what says Christmas day more than Zimbabwean youth posing like Usain Bolt.
(Seriously, it's apparently the thing to do, pose like Bolt. 
Everyone was doing it. Literally. To the point of absurdity.)

Photobucket
Isn't a Christmas Day wonder of the world just beautiful?

A Christmas day afternoon tea at the Victoria Falls Hotel.

Photobucket
Too bad this didn't come out better (the joys of a waterproof point and shoot camera!) but isn't it adorable?

Photobucket
Santa made a visit, Zim style, on Christmas morning!

Photobucket
And what can be a better sign of Christmas traffic than a Zim hanging out the front door of a bus
while going circa 100 kilometers/hour?!

Photobucket
And, this, this, this may be my favorite photo I've taken in Africa. EVER.
It captures so much of traveling on the continent: an old truck; an old truck overflowing with random stuff;
an old truck overflowing with random stuff with people popping out of every nook and cranny;
and the cherry on top: the people fast asleep at 120 km/hour.

And scene.
