Elephants Cross Victoria Falls Bridge
by Clive Goodrich
Hi Once More,
My friends and I, now in our teens and working managed to "acquire " a V W beetle which gave us the opportunity to visit the Victoria Falls almost every day. (remember at that time Petrol was 1 shilling and 9 pence a gallon, and so was a packet of 50 cigarettes)
Livingstone had it's own weekly newspaper which came out on Fridays.
In one issue the head lines read ELEPHANTS CROSS THE BRIDGE.
There had been a large pile of elephant dung found in the centre of the bridge!!!! Little did the tourists or residents know that my mates and I collected the dung from the vicinity of the big tree and transported it in a vanette and dumped it in the centre of the bridge..
Till next time.
