Angel's Armchair, Livingstone, Zambia, February 7, 2016

This morning I crossed into Zambia-

to visit Angel's Armchair, a natural infinity pool found on Livingstone Island in the middle of the Zambezi Rver, on TOP of Victoria Falls-

Dougie, Helen, me, Jess, Poppy, Adam, Rhod and Rob definitely enjoyed ourselves.  Yes that's the 100m drop of the falls behind us... right behind us-

Looking down-

Devil's Pool is usually where groups go until the water gets too high.  It's in the background-

Getting there was a bit complicated because Canadians can't get multiple entry visas for Zimbabwe.  That meant I bought a $75 US visa a week ago and then because I crossed the bridge to Zambia for 4 hours, I not only had to buy a $20 US Zambian visa but another $75 US Zimbabwean visa to return.  

I also had a good afternoon, watching bungee jumping, gorge swinging and zip lining as well as eating great Thai curry and drinking fabulous South African Shiraz - Graham Beck.  I first found it in Winnipeg years ago when Nico was sick and it's still as good as ever :)

Looking forward to Chobe National Park in Botswana and an added bonus?  From now on, entry to countries is free!  No more visas!

We had one goal to accomplish today and that was to obtain our Cameroon visas.  Because there is fighting along the west border of Cameroon ...
