One: The Guardian’s David Smith goes to Zimbabwe’s Victoria Falls and wonders whether tourism can revive the country’s economy. I went there a year or so ago at the end of a long road trip with Monocle. It’s truly stunning, although eerily quiet. Unsurprisingly, not that many tourists fancy a trip to Zimbabwe these days.
Two: New York Times’ photographer Michael Kamber, recently travelled to Somalia. His photos, on the Times’ Lens blog, are amazing (particularly the Playboy picture – slide 7) and his words of advice for surviving in Somalia are well worth reading too.
