Today in 1856 one of the world's most beautiful secrets was first seen by a #European .
#drlivingstone was a #Scottish physician in #Africa acting as a#missionary . Now #davidlivingstone was a #british#hero back in kat #victorian#england , as he was also a #explorer , mapping out and bringing back tales of a world totally different to theirs.
He was obsessed with trying to locate all the sources of the river #Nile , as he believed it would give him the power to remedy emse evil,and it was through this obsession that he made this discovery.
In 1852, following a disagreement with a fellow missionary he set out to map the #zambezi River. And today in 1856 he reached the point referred to as "Mosi-O-tunya' (the smoke that thunders). A beautiful ang huge waterfall measuring 1.708m (5604ft) wide, 108m (354ft) high (2x the height of #niagrafalls ) it also produces the largest sheets of falling water in the world.
Livingstone renamed it after the reigning british #monarch#queenvictoria and Europe was introduced to the beautiful natural phenomenon that is #victoriafalls .
He later wrote the "scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight" and I think that truly sums up the magestic beauty of the waterfall
Now I'm a bit torn on Livingston as whilst he and other missionaries meant well, they were imposing their beliefs on others, believing and their intervention in Africa led to Europeans coming in and plundering the country. He did tough however, play a role in ending the ARab-Swahili slave trade.
I think it's hard sometimes to look back on history with our more knowledgeable and informed understanding of today and not jude them to modern standards. However, they did not have that foresight and in his case his actions were made in a sence of compassion and love, not out of greed or hate for those he encountered. So I think he deserves his place as a British hero.

Staying in a cave cottage in the Nubian Camp of Aswan in Egypt was a wonderfully relaxing experience. Crossing the west side of the Nile by motor boat brought me to this beautiful colourful community. The huts are colourful domes while the community gathers in this area of rugs to both rest and eat. The sounds of Call to Prayer echo across the water five times a day. #egypt#travel#nubiancamp#nile#colourfulaccomodation#meditation#culture#africa#love
There are many things that could be said about Aswan, but one of my highlights of the city was the view from the walking the desert above the Tombs of the Nobles and behind the Dome of the Wind.
The island pictured is Elephantine Island, situated in the middle of the Nile. You can also see one of the traditional feluccas towards the bottom left. There are a few dozen of these - if not more - that ply the waters up and down the river daily. If you manage a day without being asked if you want a felucca ride at least a dozen times, I want to know your secret.

We are very excited to announce to you guys our partnership with @KOTN, a made-in-Egypt brand providing #NewYork and #Toronto , among other places, with its super-luxe, affordable basics, that are ethically made from authentic Egyptian cotton.
And to celebrate this partnership we will be providing a couple of you guys with $100 GIFT CARDS! ⠀
But first let us tell you more about @KOTN and why we have chosen to partner up with these awesome guys.
KOTN focus on one naturally remarkable fibre: their namesake, authentic Egyptian cotton. Grown in only one place in the world — the Nile Delta — Egypt’s “white gold” is finer, softer, and more breathable than any other cotton. Unfortunately, since 2001, there has been a 95% decline in demand from big corporations that opted to go with cheaper options. As a result, millions of farmers, weavers, and craftspeople are struggling to make ends meet.
By working directly with cotton farming families in #Egypt , they want to rebuild the industry from the inside. They make their own fabrics from raw cotton bought direct from farmers at guaranteed prices. Like farm-to-table, but for your clothes.
Their cotton is then sent to our cut-and-sew factory outside #Alexandria . The responsibly-run operation employs locals, securing their craft and their livelihood. By scrapping the middleman, they’ve ensured a fair wage for themselves, and an honest price for you.
To stop the cycle of child labour, they have also partnered with pro-literacy organizations on the ground in the #Nile Delta. In 2017 they completed the funding and construction of their first school, and over Black Friday they raised enough money to fund a second one. Improving the literacy rate for boys and girls in Egypt will help to improve quality of life for the next generation.
