Zimbabwe – Stuck in Customs

The Tumble

Daily Photo – The Tumble

The very “top” of a waterfall is called the crest. It makes a lot of sense, but I had to google that first. There’s a name for everything. Anyway, check out the crest on Victoria Falls, eh? It’s interesting how much green there is in there. It must be a ton of biomass. I googled a little to see what percentage of this waterfall is actually water, but came up dry.

Rene Contemplating Life

Savvy Awards

It appears I have mistakenly recently become a winner in the Savvy Awards. I’m in that list right under Elon Musk.

This is a rather unique area of Zimbabwe where these huge granite boulders are just kind of sitting on top of a hill. You can see Rene up there sitting on top of one while Neville and Deanie are having a G&T over on the left. We asked our guide if we would get in trouble if we rolled one of these down the hill. He said, yes, of course. But then we said, “How about if we roll two new ones up the hill in exchange?” He didn’t know what to say… but he was pretty sure it was wrong. Then we said, “Okay, how about if we roll up a new one and don’t roll down any at all?” That one really stumped him.

Last Second Shopping Idea!

Why not get that special someone the Stuck In Customs Passport? Every Sunday, they’ll get a new video plus have access to over 100 previously created videos. What’s in the package?

Here’s my friend Jo with some of the team from a lodge we stayed at in Zimbabwe. I thought his t-shirt was brilliant. Jo has done about seven Ayuasca ceremonies over the past year and he’s really changed quite a bit. And by changed, I mean in the right direction. It’s not too different from my own journey with DMT and other things that have really helped make reality make sense. One thing is for sure, that we don’t suffer any BS anymore! 🙂

Old Lady in Zimbabwe

Two Girls One Wall

This is pretty amazing!

Daily Photo – Old Lady in Zimbabwe

Wow that Zimbabwe really had some awesome looking people. I didn’t expect to take as many people photos as I did. I think one big reason is we were entertained at a fun festival and everybody was so colorful and excited to have their photos taken! I wish I had brought one of those Polaroid cameras so I could give them some instant print outs!

Doing Laundry in Zimbabwe

Look what happens when…

…lightning strikes sand!

Daily Photo – Doing Laundry in Zimbabwe

It’s amazing what people carry on their heads here! I noticed they start training the girls quite early with lighter loads. They actually put a little ring on their heads (sort of like a bean bag) that sort of flattens out the surface area so they can put anything on top. We went out to watch the sunset and saw these ladies walking miles back to their homes across the sand. It makes you wonder why people in the modern West complain about doing the laundry.

Rene Jumping Over Jonatas in Zimbabwe

Crazy Beatbox

This might be the best guy I’ve ever seen!

This guy has serious talent one of my favorite videos of all time from videos

Daily Photo – Rene Jumping Over Jonatas in Zimbabwe

Rene is definitely a climber and a jumper. In Africa, if a baboon could climb it, then he was pretty sure he could too. It made me quite nervous, actually… I’m not personally scared of heights, but I mostly don’t want to watch other people do that stuff… especially when they are your friends!

Victoria Falls from Above

Naval’s Podcast

Here is an excellent podcast from Naval. It’s a bit business-oriented, but there is also great life advice in here too. One cool thing about the podcasts is that each one is only about 2 minutes long. That Naval gets to the point!

Daily Photo – Victoria Falls from Above

On the way here, we had this strange female pilot. It was a little Cessna plane and I was sitting up where the co-pilot sits. She was getting up into the plane (it’s a long way up) and I offered her my hand to give her a boost up. She kind of snapped at me and said, “I’m not THAT old!” I was thinking… jeez lady, just being nice. But, she was at least cool enough to tilt the plane right and left as we went over the falls so we could get this God’s eye view.

Look how cool all these kids are! I spent the day at a special village festival in a remote part of Zimbabwe. Wow these kids were absolutely amazing. They were some of the happiest kids I’ve ever met. They are all very poor (by any standard), they have no tech, they have no healthcare, they have no YouTube… despite all that, they were the most joyous kids I’ve ever seen. It’s kind of hard to tell in this particular photo because there was a rather “serious” part of the festival so the mood was complex.

Walking to the festival in Zimbabwe

New Show Recommendation

If you haven’t wanted “Succession” yet, be sure to put it on your list. It reminds me a little of “Billions,” but the writing and characters are even better.

Daily Photo – Walking to the festival in Zimbabwe

This is one of my favorite random shots from Zimbabwe. Check out this mother and son while they are walking to the big festival. I loved her white outfit and the shape of the lines across her body as they matched with her son. I’m not sure why she was wearing white; I should have asked her! 99% of everyone else at the festival was dressed in all kinds of fanciful colors.

The Massive Victoria Falls

A New Article

Below is a new article that came out about me living here in Queenstown, New Zealand. It was written by my good friend Miranda Spary. Enjoy!

Daily Photo – The Massive Victoria Falls

Right on the border of Zambia is the amazing Victoria Falls. It’s considered the “biggest” in the world because it has the widest “sheet” of falling water in the world. The best time to visit it is actually towards the end of the year in the “low season” because when there is maximum water flow, there is so much mist that you can’t even see the waterfall!
