Photographer's Note

This bridge it the link between Zambia and Zimbabwe. It was build by Rhodes who wanted it in this exact place to show the passengers the view of the waterfalls of Victoria, located few meters at left. Cecil Rhodes had a plan to take this railway from Cape Town to Cairo.
Nowadays this tourist train take visitors to this point where some people practice bungee jumping.
Here I was in Zimbabwe but most we can see here are in Zambia.

..................................................

Esta ponte liga Zimbabue à Zâmbia, foi mandada erguer por Rhodes, que desejava que os visitantes se impressionassem com a vista das cataratas, localizdas poucos metros à esquerda.Cecil Rhodes tinha umn plano de estender esta ferrovia ligando a Cidade do Cabo ao Cairo.
Atualmente os turistas chegam até esta ponte neste velho trem e algums saltam de bungee jumping.
Eu estava no território de Zimbábue, porém a maior parte do que se vê aqui fica em Zâmbia.
