These are left over from the hyper inflation days before Zimbabwe switched to the US $ to stabilize their economy. You can buy a Trillion Dollar bill for $10 US. It was not a meaningful souvenir to us, so we passed. After a lazy afternoon, we sat at the Terrace Bar, ordered a bottle of wine and some appies, and had a casual dinner under the ...

      ... levels ranging from 1-5 with 5 being the highest. Whenever you watch people rafting you're pretty much just waiting for the raft to flip over, thats the exitement when watching it, while when you're actually on the raft the experience is a bit different. During those 25 rapids I fell in about four times (as far as I can remember), two of which the whole raft fliped over. It was loads of fun, but at the same time ...
