today we woke up and went on a safari! it was so amazing, we saw so many animals. we first were amazed with the monkeys, even though they are running around our camp and see them just as often as squirrels! but then i saw a crocodile, and then i saw a huge lizard, then i saw some African deer, then a rhino! there are two rhinos in the park, and they are the only rhinos in all of Zambia! they are free to walk around, but are guarded by two guards with guns. it is a male and a female, and last year they had a baby but it died of drought. i got to stand so close to the rhinos is was amazing. the next thing we saw was a trunk of an elephant reaching up for a tree. we stopped the car and started taking pictures all disappointed that all we could see was the trunk from behind the trees. but then one more elephant came, then another, then another! soon there was about 15 elephants, and we even got to see a two day old elephant!!!! they were so cute, and i got great pictures, they crossed right over the road, we actually had to drive up so that they wouldn't walk right on top of us! the next thing we searched for was a giraffe! it took like an hour to find one, and finally we gave up! and on the way out of the park mom spotted one and then we saw another and another. we saw three giraffes, however they were much much much further away then the rhinos and elephants! we also was a warthog, a few hippos, and lots of birds. i had so much fun there!
then we went to Victoria falls! it was amazing! you could get so close to them and we had to wear our bathing suits because you got so wet from the mist! like you couldn't even open your eyes sometimes because you were getting so wet! it was like if you had a really high pressure shower shooting you with water from all angles! it was so amazing, i now know why it is one of the 7 wonders of the world!
we also watched the bungee jumpers jump off the bridge, they tried to convince me to do it, but once i saw someone i got to scared! maybe if i had a friend to do it with i would come back to Victoria falls and do it.
then we went on a boat along the river to see the sun set. it was really pretty, and i had a lot of fun. i met a girl who goes to the university of Zambia, which happens to be like 10 minutes from Linda's house. so maybe i could do a year abroad there and student teach at the chikumbuso school. that is something that i really want to look into!!!!
i had tons of fun today and I'm sad that we are leaving tomorrow!!!!
