A Day with God’s Creation

Today we had a bright and early morning that started at 5 AM. We packed all of our bags and loaded up into a bus that took us to Livingstone. We started our morning on a game drive through a safari. We got onto trucks that took us through some beautiful scenery and we got to see white rhinos, elephants, giraffes, zebras, and more! We even got to get out of the trucks to get up close and personal with some of the rhinos. We also learned so much from our tour guide about animals and the land that we were on. After the drive, we went out to lunch and had pizza. Some of us had up to ten pieces, so it’s safe to say we were well fed today. Then, we headed to one of the seven natural wonders of the world: Victoria Falls. We saw some breathtaking sights and had some interesting interactions with baboons. Because of how strong the waterfalls were, a lot of us came out of there pretty damp. It was truly a sight to see. After that, we practiced bargaining at the local market! There were so many stands with jewelry, art, and various knick knacks. We all came back with so many stories of the people we met. We went out to dinner next, where a lot of us tried new foods such as crocodile skewers and fried caterpillars! We stopped for gelato before making our way back to the hotel for the final debrief. Back in spring semester, we wrote letters to our future selves that we opened tonight and we got to reflect on our week as a whole and the take-aways we have from the trip. We’re now going to end our night with some games, swimming, and comradery, and tomorrow we will begin our travels home!
