- Only in Zambia. Devil's pool #victoriafalls #livingstone #zambiaπŸ‡ΏπŸ‡² Day 73 Zambia As I ended up moving to another country last evening, anticipated but without concrete plans, I had to compromise on the accommodation choice, which meant checking into a hostel. It was a good choice as hostels are usually located in the center of cities, likely to have a spare bed unless it is a high season, very unlikely in this region at this time, and cost will ever be an issue. I haven't been to hostel for quite some time. The last time apparently was at Iguazu falls 1Β½ years ago. When hopping from one hostel to another during my 20s in Europe, I once saw a hostel which had an age limit, the upper limit being 30; I wondered if I'd ever become one of those old men trying to fit into youngsters lively environment, yet here I am! One issue I find with hostels is that most conversations are very tiresome. Same topics over and over. Unless she's a real hottie, in which case I'd get cockblocked nonstop, I can't get myself engaged into whatever these kids feel important to themπŸ˜ͺ In that respect, I start to appreciate the random encounters which lead to deep, meaningful conversations, usually with older women πŸ˜… The hostel was well accommodating though. Not too crowded, not too noisy either. The place was clean, well equipped with a bar, a pool and everything, I couldn't have asked for more, good enough for one night. One thing that surprised me and appreciated was how heavily guarded the place was with wired fences, a metal gate, guards on duty, it's like our own prison enclosed inside the brave new world. To summarize my observation in Livingstone, Zambia may have more stable economy, its residents seem to be more hungry for tourists cash. It's the same ethnic group after all; they gained independence earlier, and its rise in tourism coincided with global sanctions against the neighbor. So while every Zambian is eager to seize the opportunity, Zimbabweans are more cautious about keeping travelers happy, having seen they can all disappear one day. Oh, how I missed Zimbabwe after allπŸ˜‚ Second time crossing the border on foot, once again I've done a stupid risky thing in Africa.
