Zambia

Sadly, We Finally left Sun Rise of Life

We have officially left the center and have made our way to Zambia. We flew from Arusha to Dar es Salam and were planning to spend the night in the airport because our flight to Livingstone was leaving really early in the morning. However, when we arrived in Dar we were not allowed into the airport until our flight was boarding and there were only a hand full of chairs for people to sit on to wait for their flights and they were all occupied. We decided to bight the bullet and take a taxi to a nearby hotel and spend the night there which was the right decision or else I think we would have all been crabby and would have probably wanted to kill one another.

We arrived in Living Stone, Zambia this afternoon and checked into our hostel, Jollyboy Backpackers. After we checked in we booked a sunset dinner cruise on the Zambezi River and then we headed into the city. Living Stone was created purely as a tourist town and has a very Western look to it and the town itself is not very big. Our dinner cruise was really nice and we even got to see some hippos and crocodiles swimming near our boat. Tomorrow we are going to wake up early and head to Victoria Falls to explore and see how close we can get to the falls. We had planned to jump into Devil’s Pool at the top of falls but the water level is too high still and is not open. That was a huge disappointment because I was really looking forward to hanging my head over the falls but now I will just have to look forward to great white shark diving in South Africa.

I will hopefully post some pictures of Victoria Fall’s tomorrow night if the internet is working in my favor! If not I am only in Africa for 10 more days and then I will be able to post all of the pictures that I want!
