Seven Most Wonderful Waterfalls in the World – Victoria falls

Seven Most Wonderful Waterfalls in the World – Victoria falls

There is some dispute about the most powerful waterfall in the world. Victoria Falls lies on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. Zambians call it ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ – “the smoke that thunders” – while Zimbabweans call it Victoria Falls. With a width of 1.7 km and a height of 108 m, it is thought the largest sheet of falling water anywhere in the world.

The photo above is of the most famous of the seven wonders waterfalls. Niagara may come from the old Iroquois word for the river – Onguiaahra – “The Strait”, and the Horseshoe Falls are reputed to hide the spirit of He-No, the Iroquois thunder god. Though they are truly massive in size, a mere 6,000,000 cubic feet of water flow every 60 seconds, rather less than the Victoria falls.

When you stand before one of the most awe-inspiring features of the natural world, the beautiful  giant waterfall, you cannot help but admire the raw power and beauty that steals your breath away. The continuously dancing rainbows ithe water droplets just adds to the magic, and the mightier the roar of cascading water, the greater the thrill.

CORAL CASTLE – Ed Leedskalnin

Coral Castle in Homestead, Florida, is one of the most amazing structures ever built. In terms of accomplishment, it’s been compared to Stonehenge, ancient Greek temples, and even the great pyramids of Egypt. It is amazing – some even say miraculous – because it was quarried, fashioned, transported, and constructed by one man: Edward Leedskalnin, a 5-ft. tall, 100-lb. Latvian immigrant.
