This is one of my great pictures. Not so much because of the picture itself, but because of the commentary I will make about it. We stopped at the hot springs because the tour leader suggested it would be a good idea. I, however, thought it was a very bad idea. What stopping at the hot springs meant was that we would be cutting our visit to the Great Zimbabwe short by the amount that we spent at the hot springs. Now for those who have no idea what the Great Zimbabwe is, it’s one of the great archeological sites in the south of Africa. It’s a UNESCO World Heritage site. I wanted to see it. I’m sure I’ll get to see it. I just won’t get to spend as much time there as I wanted. This is the second time we’ve shortchanged a UNESCO site to go to a location where we could indulge in water activities such as swimming and lots of alcohol. There has been more than one occasion when I have been disappointed with the selection of places to stop and the style of the trip. What I’ve learned is to never book a trip with a group where the average age of the rest of the group is under twenty-five. The primary cultural awareness of such a group can be, on occasion, to simply find the next bar where they can get a beer. Note that the largest dimension available for this picture is 1024 X 768 as it was uploaded at a very slow bandwidth from a remote location in Africa.
