I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

I've got sunshine on a cloudy day


We're spending the day in the town of Victoria Falls.

Several of us wanted to walk out to the bridge, which spans the second gorge of the falls and acts as the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Since the bridge is technically no-man's land, we had to drive out there, past the border control, then get out and walk.

I could tell we were getting close when the windows on the van were suddenly wet. We drove on another couple hundred feet, and the "rain" stopped as suddenly as it began.

This where the brave and the foolish can bungee jump into the gorge, or take a zip line across the river. Our bit of daring was going out there without officially leaving Zimbabwe, so that we had to file through the immigration office on our return, in the front door and straight out the back, pretending that we were being officially readmitted to the country.
