Home for the Holidays (Part 2)

Where my sister lives baboons and monkeys visit a lot. In the morning it is not surprising to be woken up by them running on the roof of the house and howling outside. If you look closely you can see one sitting on the ground and others in the tree. They are even clever enough to open the outside taps so one always has to check otherwise the water will run on and on.


Took this picture after we had come out from seeing the Falls. When we were entering there were a lot of people taking pictures by the sign so we decided to take pictures afterwards.

The mighty Mosi-oa-Tunya (the Smoke that Thunders). Pictures fail to really capture the beauty of Victoria Falls. It is mersmerizing and breathtaking. It was second time to see the Falls but I can say the first time doesn't really count because I was 7 and I hardly remember anything plus I do not even have pictures of that visit - ah well.



 
A random picture taken as we were walking around. It was so green and beautiful as it is the rainy season and the vegetation is bloomimg and the Falls really thundering.

Yep, we did have fun. This is my cousin jumping next to the Zambezi River. Those waters look real calm but the Zambezi has a lot of crocodiles so we were on the look out for them and ready to flee.

This is the bridge which separates Zambia and Zimbabwe. If you look closely you will see that it is painted half way. The Zambians painted their half and left the other half (interesting).  We went near the bridge to watch the brave souls who were bungee jumping.

Here goes one such brave soul. Here they were being lifted up after the jump.

Time for lunch and we went to a Thai resturant which served some delicious dishes. We ordered many dishes to try a bit of everything. This was one of them.

Cheers to life, family, happiness, all good things and to 2015.

Perhaps I am a person of contradictions but here is the thing – I like doing new things but I am not a huge fan of change. I like planning ...
