A is for Ten in Africa

Top of the list of the ten most impressive sites in Africa is Victoria Falls in Zambia and Zimbabwe.

If you choose to go there, watch out for Devil’s Pool, a natural pool atop Victoria Falls that far too many visitors choose to swim in to dare the devil.

They say no one has ever died as a result of a fall from Devil’s Pool, but perhaps they haven’t heard of the explorer Samson Bonham’s trip there in 1899 when he tried to follow the route David Livingstone took through the area then known as Zambisia.

This post is one in a series of short posts including the number 10 in the first sentence, a requirement of the San Diego Writers and Editors Guild anthology submission in 2021.
