Sorry but baths are gross, unless you've showered before hand and then it kind of defeats the purpose.


Speaking of showers, one of my most euphoric moments was visiting Victoria Falls while working in Zambia and walking upon the footbridge that spans the face of the falls. This was after spending 2 months working non-stop with dying people in HIV/AIDS clinics. To go from being around so much death to abundant life was a very spiritual experience for me. Getting soaked from head to toe by the face of a waterfall nicknamed "the Smoke that Thunders" felt like being cleansed of death. I just stood there, literally laughing the whole time and I didn't even know why.

As someone who believes in God, the time I spent in the clinics was definitely what John of the Cross would have called a dark night of the soul, but that one hour I spent at Vic Falls was very spiritually restorative.

Anyway, enough of all that.

Here's a video that kind of shows you what the experience is like, although this one is during the rainy season when the water level is pretty crazy:






And no, I couldn't do the Devil's Pool because I was there in July. confused.gif

Playing ball. Being with good friends, and above all playing ball with good friends.

In particular I was back home playing 5v5 (soccer) with some of my college buddies in August on a crystal clear, 72-degree Sunday and I had the thought that I'd be perfectly content if that game could just go on forever.

Any sort of a hike/trek with a location / view you want to reach in mind. Always satisfying when you get to the summit.

I was thinking along the lines of this too...

Top of a summit looking out in each direction.

Outlook for a waterfall.
