Victoria Falls, Christmas Day 2013

As many folks know, Katie and I spent Christmas at Victoria Falls in Livingstone, Zambia. We wanted to take advantage of a few leftover vacation days, so we decided that our presents to one another this year would be a trip to see what is arguably one of the most beautiful sites in the world. The trip down there was long (it's around 2500 kilometers from Dar es Salaam, and that doesn't include the flight we took from Mwanza to reach Dar) and we used planes, trains, and automobiles to get there. But the effort was totally worth it. The Falls are magnificent. Here are few selected pictures. They won't do it justice, but they're still purdy nonetheless.

Katie had a good write-up of the whole trip on her blog, so go there and see pictures of the train adventure, walking with rhinos, Christmas Mass, and a lively rendition of a Zambian take on "Happy Birthday."
