Want to go Where Hippos Roam

Want to go where hippos, rhinos, and elephants roam? Want to see some things you will never see at home? Zimbabwe is the place to travel. Victoria Falls will delight. National Gallery of Zimbabwe is full of wonderful light. Victoria Falls drops into the Batoka Gorge with real beauty. I think we should head to Africa, it feels like our duty. Matusadona and Mana Pools National Parks would keep us busy. Watching the giraffes and zebras, might put us in a tizzy. The sights we would see there would be with us the rest of our life. White water rafting and bungee jumping we could do with no strife. Want to go where hippos might chase us into the trees? Zimbabwe, Mom. Can we go there just once, please?

My mother would be giggling her guts out. She will barely leave her home town for two seconds. The farthest she goes is 30 miles.
