Each Monday, I post a mystery photo, or occasionally a mystery object. I invite you to leave a comment*, if you think you know the location of this week’s photograph, (posted above). If you guess correctly, I will link back to your blog, when the answer is revealed the following week. Many thanks to Ineke from Iscrap2.wordpress.com for contributing last week’s mystery photo. More guest contributions to MMP are very welcome.
Where is the following photography located?
*N.B. If your comment/guess isn’t showing immediately, it is because comments are released on the following Thursday or Friday of the week the Monday Mystery photo, is posted. That way, everyone gets a chance to guess, without peeking at any of the previous guesses.
Last week’s Guest MMP photo came from Ineke of Iscrap2.wordpress.com was, if you remember Primary School social studies curriculum from the 2oth century, the statue of the Colonial African Explorer, David Livingstone, situated near to Victoria Falls! Surrounded by tourists in this photo, from Ineke! Well done also to the following bloggers who guessed correctly:
Mel & Suan (Google search helped!)
Livingstone’s statue is located on the Zimbabwe side of Victoria Falls. In recent times, the statue of David Livingstone has survived two attempts to have it removed!
First in 2001 by veterans of the Zimbabwe war of independence who regarded him as a painful reminder of a colonial past, and second by the Zambian government which, in 2003, wanted the statue moved to Zambia and erected on the other side of the river to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the explorer’s first sighting of the Falls. Resistance to the removals from the local community has ensured that Livingstone’s statue remains where it was first erected, gazing sternly out towards Devil’s Cataract.
I hope I have given you Something fun to Ponder About this Monday
