I wish you could have joined us on our visit to Victoria Falls.
When you walk through the tropical forest leading to Victoria Falls, you are absorbed into a world of power, water and energy. It feels like a kind of natural baptism that realigns the perception of one’s place in the universe. This place is literally “awesome”.
Nearby, there is a somewhat demanding hike down to the “Boiling Point”, where the water from the falls is squeezed through a narrow passage and creates a powerful vortex that gives a frisson of fear and admiration, thrilling and annihilating the ego.
Then you have to return on that same very steep path. If you didn’t sweat or breathe hard coming down, you will going up. For me, it was a test of my determination and physical endurance, but well worth it.
